framework for managing administrative policies and privileges

PolicyKit is an application-level toolkit for defining and handling the policy that allows unprivileged processes to speak to privileged processes.

It is a framework for centralizing the decision making process with respect to granting access to privileged operations (like calling the HAL Mount() method) for unprivileged (desktop) applications.
