Serving files securely to web clients via mogile

Not sure this is the place, but maybe someone can give some info me a 
tip here.

I want to use mogile to serve files to remote clients via http. Ideally 
the files should be accessed directly from the storage nodes by the 
clients. Mogile seems good for this since all file access is via http, 
and it works nicely with robust http servers (like lighty).

Problem is that I don't want the remote clients to see the actual 
MogileFS file path when accessing the files and I want some security not 
letting any client access any file. So instead of providing the client 
with something like "", 
I want the client to access some name I generate (for example with 
lighty's mod_secdownload).

Question is how would I go about configuring the storage nodes to do 
this? Is there any such built in functionality in MogileFS?
