Security for Apache Kafka Training Course

Course Code



7 hours (usually 1 day including breaks)


  • An understanding of Apache Kafka


  • Software Testers


Apache Kafka is a stream-processing software for handling real-time data feeds. With Apache Kafka and its open system, network security is compromised and sensitive data is at risk.

This instructor-led, live training (onsite or remote) is aimed at software testers who wish to implement network security measures into an Apache Kafka application.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Deploy Apache Kafka onto a cloud based server.
  • Implement SSL encryption to prevent attacks.
  • Add ACL authentication to track and control user access.
  • Ensure credible clients have access to Kafka clusters with SSL and SASL authentication.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
