console(5) -- Linux man page
NAMEconsole.apps - specify console-accessible privileged applications
DESCRIPTIONThe /etc/security/console.apps/ directory should contain one file per application that wishes to allow access to console users. The filename should be the same as the servicename, and the contents are irrelevant; the file may be a zero-length file. The application that the file is used by is free to specify the contents in any way that is useful for it.
