This is the basis of most "security" measures- not ensuring absolute security, but decreasing the likelihood of an undesirable event occuring by, as Random_Walk pointed out, "raising the bar" in such a manner as to create the least possible interference with the affairs of regular users.

"One is enough. If you are acquainted with the principle, what do you care for the myriad instances and applications?"
- Henry David Thoreau, Walden
