Bypassing normal security isn't really an option since this would allow an exploit to be done.

E.g. if we have a "createConnectionOverridingSecurity" command that's only used by message suckers, then someone could spoof the sucker and send the correct bytes down the wire corresponding to that command and get read access to any queue.

What I'm thinking of doing is having a built in user called "sucker" (or whatever) which the message sucker uses to make connections.

The sysadmin can then change the password of sucker in order to secure the system.
