Greetings Tom,

Thank you for your interest in MediaGoblin. Presently there are no access 
controls built into the MediaGoblin software. All media and collections are 
publicly viewable. Some people have worked around this by configuring 
webserver-based authentication methods (such as htpasswd files) to make the 
entire MediaGoblin site password protected. I am unaware of any middle-ground 
approaches that restrict access to selected media. One possibility would be to 
run two separate instances of MediaGoblin, one available publicly, and one 
protected by webserver-based authentication, but that would require duplicating 
resources and user accounts, so it's probably not a very attractive solution.
