Description

If you've struggled setting up Kafka Security, or can't make sense of the documentation, this course is for you

First of all, an insecure cluster is a big problem:

  • anyone can read / write to any topic, and this can lead to bad data or data leak

  • you don't know who is connected to your cluster

  • data isn't encrypted in flight and could be intercepted by hackers

In this course, you'll learn Kafka Security, with Encryption (SSL), Authentication (SSL & SASL), and Authorization (ACL).

Over 1800 students and 160 reviews later, we're convinced this course can save you a lot of time.

----------------------------

Kafka Security is important for the following reasons:

Encryption (SSL) for Apache Kafka

> Ensure data is securely transported from machine to machine
> Prevent MIDM (man-in-the-middle attacks) on your Kafka Cluster
> No more PLAINTEXT data going around in your network

Authentication (SSL & SASL) for Apache Kafka 

> Ensure only clients with credentials can access your clusters
> Give each of your clients a user-id, therefore enabling the possibility of controlling their access using ACL

Authorization (ACL) for Apache Kafka

> Ensure the clients can only read / write topics based on administrator rules
> Ensure clients cannot create / delete topics
> Provide the audit team the guarantee that the cluster is secure
