Subject Re: Doubt regarding Encryption and Authentication using SSL
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2015 16:07:02 GMT
Hi Ritesh

You just need to create yourself a text file called client-ssl.properties or similar in the
directory your running from.  In that file you put your SSL client information. Something
like this:

security.protocol = SSL
ssl.truststore.location = "/var/private/ssl/kafka.client.truststore.jks"
ssl.truststore.password = "test1234"

If you prefer you can pass these on the command line too with the producer/consumer-property
option too. 

There’s some documentation here <http://docs.confluent.io/2.0.0/kafka/ssl.html#configuring-kafka-clients>
if you’d like more info. 

All the best
