[rabbitmq-discuss] Authorization in RabbitMQ

I'm have a client that runs on mobile phones, that are sending
messages to my server (via STOMP on RabbitMQ).

I could add a signature to each message, but it could add significant
overhead to the messages. It would also be difficult to notify the
mobile client when its signature is invalid.

So far the best solution seems to be to implement a custom protocol,
with a small application on the server relaying the messages to
RabbitMQ via AMQP.
