[rabbitmq-discuss] user access permmisions

Thank you, Ben.

So there is just a simple access or deny on the vhost.

In my situation (insecure communication in internet cloud) I would need to
sign every message, so subscriber would know if content is tampered and who
is original sender.
I wish to have more grained security control provided by rabbit or event
ability to plug own security provider in the future releases.

Best regards,

These were access flags you can set with realms, but realms have
subsequently been removed from AMQP.

There are quite a few threads on this topic, e.g.:


If you search for realms, access control or ACL on this list, you will
find a lot of information.

This is not possible because vhost access control, the only access
restriction available ATM, is too coarse grained.

Again, there are many discussions on how to improve this :-)
