Subject Quick question regarding kafka broker security
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 21:53:10 GMT
Hi All,

I am new to Kafka broker and realized that Kafka broker does not enforce client authentication
at connection or message level.
To avoid DOS attack, we are planning to implement security certificate at client connection
level, not at message level,  so that
we can authenticate client connection before accepting messages.

Can you guys share your thoughts about this idea if it will be feasible without impacting
system throughput?

Subhash A.
