How can I connect to the specified nodes using IPFS?

I am aware that we can connect with specified nodes of the network using IPFS .

But what I want is that I want to connect to only specified or some authorized nodes to share data with only those specific nodes.

How is this achieved??

You can actually connect to the specific nodes in the network, to achieve that you should not connect to the public ipfs network, instead you should just create your own private ipfs network with nodes sharing the same symmetric keys.

You can refer the following document to setup a private ipfs network: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/blob/master/docs/experimental-features.md#private-networks
