I have heard of people setting up chroot environments for ssh accounts which 
is the same restriction as is usually used for anonymous FTP.

But for file access there is no way of doing it using Unix permissions.  If 
you use a security system such as SE Linux, systrace, RSBAC, or GRSEC then 
you can do such things.
