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
Hands On & Theory Based Course
Note: This course only deals with SSL for encryption & Authentication and SASL Kerberos, not other mechanisms. It also does provide an overview to enable security in a multi-broker setup, but that last part is left for the student to investigate and practice.
This course is the first and only available Kafka Security Course on the web. Get it now to become an Apache Kafka expert!

FAQ: In which order should you learn?...
AWS Cloud: Start with AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate, then move on to AWS Certified Developer Associate and then AWS Certified SysOps Administrator. Afterwards you can either do AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional or AWS Certified DevOps Professional, or a specialty certification of your choosing.
Apache Kafka: Start with Apache Kafka for Beginners, then you can learn Connect, Streams and Schema Registry if you're a developer, and Setup and Monitoring courses if you're an admin. Both tracks are needed to pass the Confluent Kafka certification.
