             Summary: Enhance AMQ jaasAuthenticationPlugin(s)
                 Key: ATLAS-578

as I would've to configure, and protect, customers LDAP credentials.  I would much rather
have 2-Way TLS, as I can have the certificates in a keystore + its key vaulted somewhere in
the host.

I've looked at 1) org.apache.activemq.jaas.TextFileCertificateLoginModule +
2) org.apache.activemq.jaas.LDAPLoginModule +

sequential successes; the way BrokerFilter works, one can't have a fallback jaasPlugin. What's
needed, is an authenticationPlugin that will use a CertificateCallBackHandler as the primary
logon, and a CredentialsCallBackHandler as a the default, kind of what SSH does (i.e
