Do you want to have a specific download link depending on the customer (i.e a secure download system), or simply mask the download link?

If it's the latter, you could always have a script like:

header('Location: http://www.example.org/path/to/download/file.pdf');

And then link to the PHP file. This way they'll see the PHP file and not the download link itself (I think)

its secure file system
