This is not possible at the time of writing (v.8.5), but it may well be
possible to write your own plugin that makes use of the information
obtained from the socket. You should look at the implementation of
rabbitmq_auth_mechanism_ssl and the rabbit_auth_mechanism_cr_demo module
in the broker if you want to pursue that avenue.
