Sharepoint permissions


We have a scanningsolution that we have configured to scan into sharepoint. The files arrive as searchable PDF:s and get organised in a documentlibrary with folders for each day as the scans occur. The idea is then that the customer can search on the content of these PDF:s. So far everything works just fine but the customer we are doing this for wants to be able to publish this sharepoint site on their homepage so that their own customers can go in and search in the sharepoint library but with limited access.
The scansoftware names the documents by a unique number that it finds by barcode on the documents, our customer can browse the whole document library and search both filenames and filecontent but they want their customer to be able to search only the filenames i.e. the unique number that the documents have and not the whole content of the file. They also don't want their customer to be able to browse the documentlibrary, they should only be able to search on the filenames.
The indexing of the documents is done by Adobe PDF iFilter. Is this solution at all possible with WSS 3.0?


Thanks in advance

RE: Sharepoint permissions

Can it be done, yes.

you will need to work on the search query string or the core results web part to only show you values where "Title=YourSearchValue".

(anyone else want to chime in on the following)
If you do item level permissions, then don't allows the customers to have access to the document library, you should be able to stop them from browsing the library.

like this:
Document Library Permissions (Owners and Contributors)
DocA (Owners, Contributors, Customer read only access)
DocB (Owners, Contributors, Customer read only access)
