Java's Authentication and Authorisation Services (JAAS) allows custom login modules to be used. This project is a placeholder for some of them.
At present one login module is provided: CertificateLoginDirectoryRolesModule. This module builds on ActiveMQ's CertificateLoginModule so that upon a client's SSL certificate being authenticated, CertificateLoginDirectoryRolesModule will look up the roles (groups) associated with the certificate subject DNs.
ActiveMQ's CertificateLoginModule should also be usable outside of ActiveMQ as it is a JAAS login module with no strong dependencies.
