I seem to remember KDE having this capability built into it - if remote 
administration was enabled.  Check your control panel - I didn't install KDE 
with remote admin, so I don't have it in mine.  But I do remember seeing 
somewhere where a user can indicate to allow remote connections, and to 
authorize connections when they were requested.  I believe the connections in 
this case were VNC sessions.

Not too helpful, I know, but maybe a direction to look?
