Use a special IP-Address for that and create iptables (or Whatever) Rules to 
protect it from other Hosts.

Or, depends on your setup and the availability of a PAM-Plugin. If there is a 
PAM-Plugin, which can block/allow requests from defined IP-Addresses, use PAM 
for that task. I havn't found such a Plugin so far. But I think there is one.
