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?
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
