Security/Authentication in Kafka

0 votes
I'm trying to build a publicly accessible Kafka communication for an IoT system and I need to implement some security measure in it.

So, does anyone know if Kafka supports SSL connections or if there are other possible ways of authenticating client connection?

Hey there, security wasn't a part of Apache Kafka's original goal, unfortunately. However, there were plans to implement authentication and authorization for it in the future. You can check them out here for securing your Apache Kafka: Apache Kafka Security.
