hi Ignazio,

the purpose of the telemetry_secret is to enable the ability to sign and 
validate datapoints transferred between Ceilometer services -- this is 
to ensure the data isn't tampered with. you just need to ensure the 
telemetry_secret value defined in config file used by 
polling/notification agent(s) is the same as the telemetry_secret value 
defined in config file used by collector service(s).

that said, in your environment, the security provided by your message 
queue might be enough for you to ensure data integrity. if so, you can 
just leave the telemetry_secret value blank to avoid the overhead of 
signing and validating each datapoint
