This TYPO3 extension (fal_securedownload) aims to be a general solution to secure your assets.

When your storage is marked as non-public all links to files from that storage are replaced (also for processed files).

The access to assets can be set on folder/file basis by setting access to fe_groups in the file module.

How to use

  1. Download and install fal_securedownload
  2. Un-check the 'public' checkbox in your file storage
  3. Add a .htaccess file with "Require all denied" in your file storage root folder or move your storage outside your webroot
