I agree the documentation is not so clear about that.

basicaly you need to creat some user user.*username* = *password_md5*
in the auth.ini file
users.alice = e3e4faee0cc7fc55ad402f517cdaf40(see doc to see how to generate the md5sums of the password)

if you just want to prevent unauthorised people to access your application, all you have to do is add in the client.ini :
securityAllowedRoles = loggedInmeaning people have to log in to access.loggedIn is a special role already defined in Cartoweb.
