You might want to have a look at PAM, the linux pluggabla authentication 
module on how to integrate your application with the login process...

Speaking on "re-create KDM": KDM is open source. If you want to create 
something very similar, why don't you check out kdm's source code and borrow 
relevant parts from it?
