What degree of sophistication are you trying to guard against?
For example, if you need to guard against a six-year-old, it's
sufficient to make your program run before the window manager,
and only start a window manager if it is happy.
If you need to guard against a high-school student, you will need to
put the computer in an inaccessible room and only offer access via a
remote keyboard, mouse and screen. You'll need to disable ctrl-alt-delete
processing to prevent reboots, and ctrl-alt-Fx console
Maybe you should discuss your threat model in more depth.
