The only security settings on the resource adapter are user name and  
password.  These let you set up a connection to an activemq broker.   
Everything else needs to be configured in the broker.

I don't know if you can configure any security in an embedded broker  
in geronimo 2.1.x using the gbean wrappers for activemq components.   
In 2.2 you should be able to configure security using the normal  
server.xml activemq configuration.  Alternatively you could use an  
external activemq instance for 2.1.x.

hope this helps
