The 'galaxy' user, or whichever user is running the files is the normal way
to handle this, with other system users not being able to access galaxy
owned files directly.

Check out https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Learn/Share for more information
about galaxy's sharing abilities, and certainly feel free to ask more
questions.  In short, there are systems built into Galaxy that allow users
to share (or secure) Galaxy objects within the framework.
