Users that want to view the node or download one of its private attachments are first redirected to a password query page (/protected-node). Once the user entered the right password, they are redirected back to the original node. Authorizations are stored in sessions, so users don't have to enter the password over and over again once provided (requires cookies).
Email feature: The module is capable of sending the password via unencrypted emails. This is useful if you create a page to be viewed only by a few people you know.
Views submodule: The module has a few extensions supporting Views. It includes filters and output extensions.
Rules submodule: The module includes a Rules extension allowing you to act on a protected node and test the current state of a node for the current user.
There is no special requirement for this module.
