It would depend on the mechanisn to lock things down. If it's a firewall, then
it won't matter because you wouldn't hit it connecting to localhost and then
all your traffic is encrypted and tunnelled. If it's some paranoid
configuration or custom application, then chances are they wouldn't permit
ssh either. If you're referring to KDE's kiosk mode, then I don't know enough
about it to form an opinion as to obstacles.
