reading such highlevel requirements leads me to think about a web application solution (only).

That means - service is provided securely only via https protocol - and the other requirements 
are handled via corresponding web application (user management, access control, etc.) with full
support of common browsers.

What about  http://owncloud.org/ ? It has "cloud" in the name but is an ordinary php web 
application with upload/download capabilities, user management, access control etc. so far as i known.
