Just to clarify, EXTERNAL *is* supported on linux, just not yet on windows.

Yes, you can use PLAIN over SSL and the password will not be sent in the 
clear over the network due to SSL encryption.

It is 'username' rather than 'login'.

You should probably confirm that on the ActiveMQ list, but I don't 
*believe* it supports EXTERNAL as a mechanism with AMQP either: "the 
broker accepts plain SASL authentication"[1].

The Qpid Java broker does support EXTERNAL[2] and though I haven't ever 
tried it on windows, as it is Java I doubt that would make any difference.
