Allow users to create issues only of a given issue type and security level

Is there a way to provide "create issue" permissions to a set of users only for a given issue type and security level?  For example, I have an inventory project and would like to allow users to create new entries in the inventory; however, they should only be able to create issues of the type "Software/Services" and of the security level that corresponds to their department.
