Confluent Control Center Security¶
Configuring security for Control Center involves various steps and needs to be done with care. Because the Control Center relies on Kafka Connect, Apache Kafka® brokers, Kafka Streams, interceptors and metrics reporters to work, there are numerous options that could be set depending on a particular environment or need.
It is recommended you first farmiliarize yourself with Kafka Security and the associated components.
Once a component is secured, will be unable to communicate to other non-secured components. For instance, if you have a secured Apache Kafka® broker and a secured Control Center, but you have not secured Connect, the Control Center will behave sporadically when you attempt to use/view it.
