Confluent Security Plugins

Confluent security plugins add security capabilities to various Confluent Platform tools and products.

  • The Kafka LDAP plugins enable group-based authorization in brokers using groups configured in your LDAP server.
  • The Confluent REST Proxy authenticates the incoming requests and propagates the authenticated principal to requests to Kafka. This enables Confluent REST Proxy clients to utilize the multi-tenant security features of the Kafka broker.
  • The Schema Registry security plugin adds the capability to authenticate the incoming requests and authorize them via the configured authorizer.
