I'd like to automatically run a shell script every time I authenticate onto my computer. However, all the info I can find about loginhook and Global LoginItems applies only when authenticating to "loginwindow," and not to the "unlock panel."

The unlock panel prompts for a password when waking up from sleep or from a locked screen. Is there any way to trigger script execution after successfully unlocking the screen?

You may want to have a look at SleepWatcher. It lets you execute Unix commands on wakeup. Not exactly what you are looking for, but still, it can help.
