Description Gordon Sim 2009-04-28 16:58:46 EDT
When the GSSAPI security context expires on a running connection (i.e. when
Kerberos ticket expires), communication to the broker on that connection becomes impossible.

To avoid this there would need to be a new sasl exchange introduced to renegotiate a new key before the old one expires. (This is an isue for the AMQP protocol in general).
