There is no plan to add authentication to ZeroMQ core. However we are
developing a data plant layer above ZeroMQ, which will do secure
distribution over multicast as well as TCP. It will use
request-response to do key distribution, and then clients will use
those keys to unlock streams of data.
The data plant layer will provide a stream-based pubsub fabric with
tools such as fork, clone, arbitrate, failover, delay, log, etc. It
will eventually connect to feed handlers to provide a ticket plant.
This new product will be open source but we're developing it off-line
initially, i.e. with a closed community of participants. If you are
interested in getting access to it early, drop me a line.
