I see no problem with it. Securing a room is a known problem, and relatively easy to do, particularly in a military base. You have physical locks and guards. If you know that the people who have access to the room should also be able to access that part of the network, the physical security secures the network.

The username and password, then, keep out people who don't have access to that room.

Well yes, securing the world is a known problem. Look at the other wall.
