CloudFront Distribution with OpenIdc Authenticated WebApp

I have a web application (hosted on EC2s fronted by ALB) that is authenticated with OpenID Connect (Ping Fed provider), and we are thinking to create AWS Cloudfront distribution on top of it so global users get better performance.

When I read Cloudfront documentation, it say that custom origin application need to be publicly available (from documentation “for CloudFront to get your files from an HTTP server, the files must remain publicly accessible”).

Does this mean that I need to remove OpenID AuthN and instead use signed URLs or cookies and if AuthN to be removed then what’s the trigger to know that the user is logged in and I could generate either signed urls/cookies for Cloudfront.

Any direction/help is appreciated…
