Thereis a plugin that do this:


||With the "User Access Manager"-plugin you can manage the access to your
||posts, pages and files. You only create a user group, put registered users
||to this and set up the rights for this group. From now on the post/page
||is only accessible for the specified group. This plugin is useful if you
||need a member area or a private section at your blog.
