If I correctly understand what you're asking for, that's not usually
the job of any given plugin. Set the 'access' field in the download
plugin to the value of one or more groups that should be allowed
access to the downloads and you should be set.

If you want, you can also provide a login content element on the same
page--if you set it's access field to 'hide at login,' the form will
disappear and the list of downloads will appear when someone
successfully logs in.
