This work describes the KAuthorized and KAuth authorization interfaces, which are based on the KConfig configuration system and PolicyKit authorization system, respectively. KAuth is integrated into KAuthorized and tests of this integration are implemented, along with a tool that converts the KConfig-based settings to PolicyKit. During the testing phase, a local Denial of Service attack on PolicyKit is discovered. The second part of the work decribes the port of the PolicyKit tool to KDE~4 and the improvement of its user interface
