Why not just use private archives? You could use a .htaccess file to
prevent access by URL if you really don't want public access at all.
Then all archive access would have to be through

If for some reason Mailman's private archive authentication is not
satisfactory and you want to bypass the login page, you can append
?password=PASSWORD (where PASSWORD is a list admin or moderator or
site admin password) to any private archive URL.

If I understood the desired end result, I might be able to suggest more.
