Normally when we say "protect my web application", we mean that we want to keep people from misusing it to steal or corrupt data or as an entry point to attack other resources.

It sounds like what you want is to protect the web application code itself.

A web server is not a file server, so there is no way that people can log into a web application and steal its code unless the application is written very badly.

The exception is stuff like JavaScript code that has to run on the client. In that case it has to be downloaded to the client to run, so it has to "steal" itself.
