How can I tell if a user has downloaded an attachment?

We put important files (certificates, etc) on Confluence pages for customers with user accounts to download. Once downloaded we then need to delete the files so we need a method of determining when the attached file has been downloaded. Is there any app/add-on which can show this?

There are a couple of apps designed for tracking views, but they cannot tell if a file was downloaded, viewed in line or previewed - those actions all look like downloads.

Is there anything at the tomcat or Apache levels that would indicate a download had been served?

If you are behind a proxy, you can enable logging of the urls hit and you'll see that preview and "open" are different.
