Allow (or restrict) certain users to specific post categories only (1 post)

    I'm looking for a plugin that allows me to grant/deny access to specific categories on a per user basis. One plugin, Allow Categories, was exactly what I was looking for unfortunately it is very old and doesn't work. Another plugin, Restrict Categories, had a nicer interface than the latter but it did the opposite of what I was looking for and it didn't work. Does anyone have a lead on a solid plugin to do the job?

    My ultimate goal is to have a page setup that lists all of the posts in all of the categories. When a user logs in, the plugin will take affect and only display the post categories that the user has been specifically allowed to see. It's important that the plugin doesn't simply hide the posts from view but restricts access to them. A key feature is an easy workflow that a non-technical person can do on a consistent basis.
