Yes, I set up a secure pub-sub mechanism in my salt project. The security is
not inside zeromq, but is rather encrypting the messages before they are
sent over the wire. My encryption setup is VERY fast, take a look:

encryption routines can be found in these files:

This is almost certainly not exactly what you want to do, but it
does illustrate that by building a viable setup that has fast encryption can
be done with zeromq. Feel free to ask me questions about it!
