Users may be allowed to shut down the system via CTRL+ALT+DEL using -a switch of shutdown command. The -a flag tells shutdown to look for the /etc/shutdown.allow file which is supposed to contain the list of users allowed to shut down the system.

This approach is used to configure CTRL+ALT+DEL action in /etc/inittab with command line running the shutdown command.
