Could you give more details on what you mean by access control? If you
mean having a way to control who (user or IP) can use the validator or 
not, this can by done at the Web server level... 

e.g for Apache, in your configuration:
<Location /validator>
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName Acces Restricted
  AuthUserFile /etc/apache/userlist
  Require valid-user
</Location>

Is that what you had in mind?
