Generate the key files for them and install them on their machine so
that they cannot change them.  (And hope they're too stupid to figure a
way around it!)

On the server, use a centralised key database which users do not have
access to, or ensure that they cannot modify the relevant files under
their home directory (Again, hope that they're too stupid...)
