[sudo-users] Password handling through remote SSH session

I have a QT application that logs into a remote machine through SSH. I need
to handle password authentication in sudo to run administrative commands.
What's the best way of handling a password prompt remotely with sudo? I
would like to have the QT application just pass the password to sudo in
some way so there is still human interaction involved. Just not sure what
is the best way or if there is a programatic way.
