Normally, one would accomplish this via Windows file / folder 
permissions.  However, it also requires that you are working with a MS 
Windows domain server environment.

If you wish to accomplish this using non-Microsoft technology, you can 
always use a password protected web folder.  It will provide read only 
access.  If you wish to provide uploading rights, then you can always 
setup FTP abilities, etc.
