After loading the file you could set READ permissions on the file so that only a particular group of people could access it. If the file is accessed, the user will be asked to authenticate, and will only be given access if he/she is a member of the group.  If the group has no members, then no one but the dspace sys admin will have access to the file.  Does this work for you?

Subject: [Dspace-general] private content?

Hello,
We are considering using DSpace, but we have a few questions concerning some of the features. Is there a way to upload a file and make it somehow private? We don't want everyone to be able to view the file so we want it to be hidden somehow... maybe if it doesnt show up in search results or something like that, or perhaps password protect it...
Does DSpace provide such features?
