It really looks like you want to distinguish between well know users and
a set of mobile users.
NuFW (http://www.nufw.org) is done to distinguish between users because
it's an authentication firewall. It authenticates connection in a secure
manner, so you're sure of the identity of users that you let go accross
You can easily manage to build a solution comparable to the one you
describe below with NuFW. With more flexibility and more security.
