NetworkManager permissions

Im having some problems with permissions on NetworkManager. We are in
the process of migrating our clients from RHEL 6.6 to RHEL 7.
The clients connect to our wireless network using eap-tls, we provide
the configuration,certificate and keys for this from our central
configurationserver so that the connection is transparent to the user.

In RHEL6.6 the password for the privatekey(pkcs12 used for
authentication) was not visible to the users only to administrators.
This was achieved by setting the connection as "system wide" in which
case the configfile was stored under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
and only accessible by root.

In RHEL7 and NM version (lbuild
from git) we can still limit the permissions to NM config using polkit
but when doing this we also limit the possiblity for the user to add
new wifi-networks.

So what i would like to achieve is to limit access to existing
connections (or connections not added by user) but i still want the
users to be able to add new wificonnections. Is this possible ?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Best Regards
