I'm not sure this will quite address the issue. If the plan is to allow pluggable authentication for credentials supplied to the RabbitMQ broker, then the plug point will be in the broker, not in the client application.

I _think_ this is what Christian was getting at :)

I think this gets close but I'm not sure it's necessarily the whole solution. Using Spring Security, message  filtering can happen at the application-level, but I think Christian was talking more about RabbitMQ not sending message to certain consumers at all.

In this case, I'm imagining the idea is to have permissions controlling which RabbitMQ users can see which messages. The broker will then only deliver messages to consumers where the authenticated user is allowed to see the messages.
