Are you saying that this is an interactive process on the system?  I'd
suggest you make sure this isn't some sort of email ticket that stores
a password or emails it.

You could probably use 'sudo' to handle the part of authenticating the
user, and run a very limited service that queried a secure system for
approval and initiated the shutdown.
