The context menu action of Kicker can be restricted with kiosk using

[KDE Action Restriction]

in kickerrc, either in the user's one (.kde/share/config/kickerrc) or in the 
global one (actually at any level of KDEDIRS)

You can additionally mark it immutable, especially when you add it to the 
global configuration.
