Remotely edit user disk quota

I am writing a Perl script to run on our web server. This script will
be used to create user accounts.

I can do almost every thing on the web server:

- create the home directory
- add a user in LDAP
- create the MySQL database for that user

The only thing I cannot do is to set the disk quota: the home
directory is NFS mounted from another machine acting as file server,
the quota must be edited on the file server.

How could I nicely and securely connect from the script on the web
server to the file server, in order to edit the quota? It should be
nice and secure and without password.
