You need policykit to check if an user or a group is authorized to do
a certain action. Also there should be a user-level policykit to
prevent or to allow certain user programs doing certain actions. You
maybe also want to limit your authorizations during remote login,
because you fear a remote login attack. It shouldn't be neither a "Are
you really sure?" program, nor a "Is really the user or only a
user-level program doing this action?" program.
