From Camel 2.12 onwards its even easier as you can provide the subject in two different ways.

Using ShiroSecurityToken

You can send a message to a Camel route with a header of key ShiroSecurityConstants.SHIRO_SECURITY_TOKEN of the type that contains the username and password. For example:

ShiroSecurityToken shiroSecurityToken = new ShiroSecurityToken("ringo", "starr");
template.sendBodyAndHeader("direct:secureEndpoint", "Beatle Mania", ShiroSecurityConstants.SHIRO_SECURITY_TOKEN, shiroSecurityToken);

You can also provide the username and password in two different headers as shown below:

Map<String, Object> headers = new HashMap<String, Object>();
headers.put(ShiroSecurityConstants.SHIRO_SECURITY_USERNAME, "ringo");
headers.put(ShiroSecurityConstants.SHIRO_SECURITY_PASSWORD, "starr");
template.sendBodyAndHeaders("direct:secureEndpoint", "Beatle Mania", headers);

When you use the username and password headers, then the ShiroSecurityPolicy in the Camel route will automatic transform those into a single header with key ShiroSecurityConstants.SHIRO_SECURITY_TOKEN with the token. Then token is either a ShiroSecurityToken instance, or a base64 representation as a String (the latter is when you have set base64=true).
