With Windows Sharepoint Services v3 its impossible to have a view of a list or a document  library with permissions. Not sure if you can do this in MOSS either.
Or may its possible but i don't know

What i know for sure is we can set and manage permission on each item on a list or on a document in a doc lib.
There are times were we need such scenarios but unfortunately we can't implement it in WSS v3.

After looking around for options i actually came across this solution for a list and view  by at :


I haven't played with it yet and i don't think Laurent Cotton has a solution yet for a doc library...

Anyway enjoy and happy sharepointing

If you are still interested in another solution .
You can give
laura's solution a try.
Hope this helps

SPListDisplaySetting and SPViewPermission are buggy tools. First check them in testing environment. I was met with a disaster when i use this tool.

Khan thats why you have to test it on a dev box before using in in production.

I have found a bullet-proof 100% workaround that can be applied out of the box.

This approach first makes the list only accessible via personal views. We then customise a personal view for each user, and finally secure the list by preventing the user from changing their personal view.

1. As Site Admin user, copy a suitable permission level (eg Limited Contribute) for the list, but uncheck the ability to manage personal views (down the bottom) and name it "Limited Contribute - default view only".
2. Modify the default "All Items" view by adding the filter "ID, is equal to, 0". This view no longer displays anything.
3. Now set permissions for the list from List Settings - add the people (not groups) who get access to the list and initially give them "Limited Contribute" so they can all still create a personal view.
4. This is the tedious part. Login as each user one by one. Create a Personal view for the current user based on the "All Items" public view. Remove the "ID is equal to 0" filter and add the filter constraints you want to apply for this particular user. Even if all users have the same filter constraint you have to do this once for each user, as they all get independent personal views.
5. Login as site Admin and bulk change all the users permissions for the list to the permissions set "Limited Contribute - default view only" that prevents them managing Personal views.
6. Hey presto, its done!

You can mix permission sets too - just make sure you remove the ability to manage personal views for each user or the list security is lost.
