Hi,
some follow-up.

XDMCP:
http://www.softpanorama.org/Xwindows/xdmcp.shtml

man XDM:
http://www.xfree86.org/current/xdm.1.html#sect7
Please note that xdm is the most generic version of X display manager.
Look at these (there is Xaccess as well):
XDMCP ACCESS CONTROL
CHOOSER

For GDM:
Xaccess in /etc/X11/gdm/Xaccess

For GDM:
[[email protected] ~]$ ls -al /usr/libexec/gdm*chooser*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  53412 Apr 28 00:38 /usr/libexec/gdm-host-chooser
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  63088 Apr 28 00:38 /usr/libexec/gdm-simple-chooser
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 108504 Apr 28 00:38 /usr/libexec/gdm-xdmcp-chooser-slave
