Security is a strong feature of Sputnik, which has a lot of user
authentication machinery built-in.  And it understands the difference
between 'authentication' and 'authorization':  just because you're a
valid user doesn't mean you should be able to trash stuff that isn't
yours!  Permissions can be assigned in a very flexible way.

Are there equivalent modules that could be used for Orbit, say?
