pnp4nagios limit access

I have nagios contacts set up, and these successfully limit access to view hosts and services in the nagios web UI.
But pnp4nagios gives access to all graphs (by editing the hostname and service name in the URL) - it does not respect the nagios-defined access controls.

I don't think you can define that for pnp4nagios. Where I work we use munin and we just let that be open to our department without password protection because it doesn't involve acknowledging alerts or disabling the alerts of services. Since it's only an informational tool and not an alert monitoring tool we don't worry about who can view what. Perhaps you should consider why you care about limiting that access to certain servers. Is it really necessary?

FYI munin does something similar to pnp4nagios graphing performance stats using a round robin database.
