Dolphin authorisation

Avoid privilege escalation in the Dolphin file manager

While acting with elevated privileges, software needs to be distraction-free, clear and user-friendly to avoid security issues and other ways of impairing a system. This project is about enabling average users to do administrative file manipulation within the popular file manager Dolphin securely and with confidence. There is a strong demand for proper integration, enabling less technically-savvy users to safely work with all kinds of files. This project will bring improvements to technical and user-friendliness aspects, so the user will know how to securely accomplish their tasks. This will remove some attack vectors, reduce the risk of falling for social engineering, and reduce user error.
