Mask password for secure kafka topic for Kafka indexing service

Hi All,

I’m using kafka indexing service to ingest data from secure Kafka topic to druid. I need to specify “ssl.keystore.password” and “ssl.truststore.password” in consumer properties. But, potentially anyone can look at these configurations after submitting to supervisor. Is there a way to mask these password? I’m using Druid 10.

Any suggestion are appreciated.


Hi :

I think this is unfortunately a limitation on Kafka side, as these properties only take plain text as input. I have tried creating a file with passwords saved in it, and provided the file path to the property, but it would not work.

Not sure if the latest Kafka has the patched up though.


Thanks for sharing your experience.
