There is a security proposal in the works
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/Security but nothing yet.

How to prevent your scenario is going to depend a little on what
circumstances would occur where test messages are occurring in production
but is something you have to take care of yourself.

I used to have test messages in production because clients needed to qa
creatives of an ad before it went live (or integration testing with
publishers and networks before running their first campaign) however those
"test" impressions and "test" events were never billable.  We added a flag
on our data (isProduction) and ran it through another public interface but
it all ended up in the same place all within our production infrastructure
but isProduction=0 was excluded in any official production reports for real
campaigns.  For us it was important for the data at rest to contain where
it came from so under audit we could prove this and segregate things.
