Looks like you need tight security! To make this work you would need to set up each of your users with the appropriate pair of groups and make sure that the document directories (and any files in public directories) are owned by a user in the appropriate groups and only allow access to the owner and group.

hope this helps

Here ...

Use setfacl and getfacl. Read man on them.
It extends classical UNIX permissions model so you can tailor it in any way you wish. ACL stands for Access Control List.

Hope it helps.
