[PLUG] Securing Web Site for External Traffic

Hey Pluggers,
  I've got a simple website running behind my firewall for administrating our various web-based devices and services (dvr, baby monitor, etc). I'm thinking about forwarding port 80 on my router to make the site accessible from outside our home network.

What are people's opinions of the best way to secure such a site? I think the easiest would be http auth with user/password, but is that "secure enough"?

I was also thinking about a vpn solution but am admittedly pretty green with that stuff and would need it to work on different platforms (iOS and droid).
