hi lukas,
using secured (authenticated) wfs is only available in the trunk version 
of mapbender2 as we use it in our federal geoportals (it will be part of 
version 2.8).
to restrict public access to your wfs (geoserver), you have to restrict 
access to localhost and register the geoserver wfs as a localhost url. 
this should be sufficient.
you have to look in the geoserver documentation.
as an alternative, you can user the apache proxy module to proxy your 
geoserver. this is quiet easy.
if you want, i send you a example configuration ;-)
