After testing it, it automatically relies on FE permissions set on pages 
or content elements.

I tried to use a link to a file that is only shown while logged-in after 
having logged me out and it gives me a "Access denied!" message. Not a 
403 HTTP error code but anyway no access to the actual file.

I'll write a patch for the 403 error code.

I thus recommend extension naw_securedl when having my requirements.
