Subject Questions regarding Kafka-1477
Date Thu, 02 Jul 2015 23:46:46 GMT

just out of curiosity and because of Eugene's email, I browsed 
Kafka-1477 and it talks about SSL alot. So I thought I might throw in 
this http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7568 RFC. It basically says move away 
from SSL now and only do TLS. The title of the ticket still mentions TLS 
but afterwards its only SSL, haven't looked at any patches or library 
code so I can't really judge what's going on.

Further I found people starting to talk about sendfile(2) TLS support, 
here for example https://people.freebsd.org/~rrs/asiabsd_2015_tls.pd 
<https://people.freebsd.org/%7Errs/asiabsd_2015_tls.pd>f. So maybe we 
can keep this door open that at some point the Kernel will be able to do 
TLS for us?
