I want to share my Google Apps calendars with the outside world (users not in my Google Apps) but I want to require a password for access. When I configure the calendar to allow outside access like so:

enter image description here

and then on the individual calendar basis like so:

enter image description here

I get big scary warnings that this makes the calendar available public via Google search etc. I want to make the calendar available to the outside world but require a Google account so I can authenticate them if I want.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Google Calendar does not have this ability. – Ramhound Dec 13 '13 at 16:42

Google had support for private calendar links until about a year ago. They removed this feature, which I had been using for years to share calendar events for my cub scout pack, which needed to be easy to share but not public for the safety of the boys. I switched over to Outlook.com this year, as it includes this feature.
