Restrict user to my scripts

Hello,

I'm trying to create a user which only can run some shell scripts I have write for him.

I tried a restricted shell, but my scripts need to access all the system resources. I also had a look at chroot, but it requires to have a whole system in the new root directory.

Is there another solution to restrict my user ?

Xavier.
