  • Wayland's version of "xhost +SI:localuser:"?

    In X11, if I wanted to run a concurrent session as different user, I could always run:

    xhost +SI:localusertherusername;pkexec --user otherusername application

    or, if I want to run a root concurrent session:

    xhost +SI:localuser:root;pkexec application


    As I've become aware of the security holes in X11, I've decided to switch over to Wayland for my daily driver. Since xhost effectively opens another X session, I'm trying to avoid it. I was wondering if a Wayland based alternative exists for "xhost +SI:localuser:"?
