Most of the routers allow to set a whitelist (or one IP address) for remote administration.

Yes, but how hard would it be to spoof that one IP address?

Quite hard. Setting your IP to whatever you want is not hard. But, getting the return packets to route back to you is the difficulty. That, and getting by the spoofing filters most ISPs employ (i.e. a source address should always fall within the ISP's range of valid IPs. A spoofed packet outside that range is dropped).

Also, determining the IP to spoof in the first place is difficult. Unless you happen to be in the routed path of the packets, where you can sniff it, you can't tell what the configured address is.
