I raised the issue here :


and for now the response is No, there is no way to configure that on a per kernel basis.

You could though write a mini wrapper/middleware in zmq in another language that accept 
unsigned message and sign them.

Though keep in mind that even on localhost, zmq ports are open to everyone and are equivalent to shell access.
