Subject Re: How to provide certificate chain/intermediate CA to kafka broker

if you dont have a "certs team" you can purchase a Contract with Certificate Authority such
as Verisign
to handle signing X509 certs
Once the certs are signed and stuffed into truststore(s)
you will then be able to supply the x509 cert with public key from CA to your clients

Hi Fang,
You will need to create a CSR using the Private Key, then get that CSR
signed by your Certs team which should be able to add the root and
intermediate certs in the signed certs. Then you will have to add them to
your stores on the host.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.
