Thank you for the response Olivier!!
yes, I'm talking about apache access control, but want to give different 
access control depending on the validating file

Currently the file path is passed as an argument 
(http://server/validator?url=http://server/file1) , if it can be passed 
as part of the url, like http://server/validator/http://server/file1 or 
similar patten,
I can do access control in Apache conf, something like

<LocationMatch ^/validator/.*/file1>

<LocationMatch ^/validator/.*/file2>

Can it be done??

Thanks so much!!!
warm regards
