I want to be able to see the logs of those build myself when I log in to the buildmaster web interface, and I want to be able to grant specific other users access to do that, but the general public accessing the buildmaster and any other logged in user should not be able to see those logs. There are also other workers that have instances of those builders; they are and should remain public.

I would read the documentation about the authorization:

It's my understanding that only endpoints and roles can be matched, e.g. 
read permission to see builds.
Not to differentiate between builds.

In that case, it's easier to set up a second buildbot.
