I am new to slim ( about 3 hours), I do have the application working (YAY!) however pretty much anyone in the world can use the API once they have discovered the path? I work for a dr.s office, and naturally all data being passed around has to be locked down....what I was hoping was that I could lock down the index.php page by use of the .htaccess file only allowing the local IP to use it, that did not seem to work...I really dont want to have to use oauth. I was hoping there was a private and public definition for the endpoints but I am not seeing that anywhere either...any help at this point would be great!

    $app->add(function(\Slim\Http\Request $request,\Slim\Http\Response $response, $next){
        if($request->getIp() === ''){
            $response = $next($request, $response, $next);
            $response->getBody()->write('in dosutpe denied');
        return $response;

    If what you're protecting is valuable, ip/mac address filtering for security is at best a weak form of security, vulnerable to ip/mac spoofing attacks. You're better off using descent authentication in combination.
