pam_localuser is a PAM module to help implementing site-wide
login policies, where they typically include a subset of the
network's users and a few accounts that are local to a particular
workstation. Using pam_localuser and pam_wheel or pam_listfile is
an effective way to restrict access to either local users and/or
a subset of the network's users.
This could also be implemented using pam_listfile.so and a very
short awk script invoked by cron, but it's common enough to have
been separated out.
