Hiding viewable files in sharepoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our company have some data in excels/images files that we want to make available to our employee through our sharepoint portal. However we do not want them to be able to download the files or copy/paste them to their PCs.

    For this problem, I have written a silverlight app to display excel file and disable select/copy function. So now we upload the files to a document library, make this library 'viewable' to all users. We have a webpart that access the library and pass the links in encrypted form to the silverlight app to display. From the webpart page, the user can not see the links to the actually files. We will give the users link to this webpart page but not the document library itself.

    However if a user goes to the 'All site contents' page, he can still easily see the document library and hence download the files.

    My question is : is there a way to have the files viewable without letting the user having the link to download it ? If there are any better ways, I would like to know as well.

    Many thanks
