Hello. You can place such markup in the SideBar page:

(:if auth edit RestrictedGroup.RestrictedPage:)
(:input form method=post action="{*$PageUrl}?action=login":)
(:input hidden n {*$FullName}:)
(:input hidden action login:)
(:if2 enabled EnableAuthUser:)$[Name]: (:input text name=authid:)\\
(:if2:)$[Password]: (:input password name=authpw:)
(:input submit value='OK':)
(:input end:)

If you want your users, after entering the password, directly to go to 
RestrictedGroup.RestrictedPage, change the "input form" line and the next one 

(:input form method=post 
(:input hidden n RestrictedGroup.RestrictedPage:)

Note that on most servers the lines with "input hidden" are not required, but 
on some, they are.

For more information about if, if2 conditionals and input forms, refer to :
  http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PageVariables about the {*$FullName} stuff.
