  The simpleAuth plugin isn't the only option.  JAAS is available.  You can link to any JAAS

  But beware, this does not work for the Stomp protocol.  You should switch Stomp off, or
patch it.  The Stomp connector in all released versions of ActiveMQ allows access with any
username and password to any queue.

  ActiveMQ opens up quite a number of interfaces.  Unfortunately, it does not ship in default
closed configuration, as I wish it did.
