has more details.
> Kafka supports pluggable authorization. Third party authorizer implementations allow
existing authorization systems like, Apache Sentry, Apache Ranger, etc to extend authorization
to Kafka as well. Implementing Kafka's authorizer interface requires depending on kafka's
core, which is huge. This has been already raised as a concern by Sentry, Ranger and Kafka
community. Even Kafka clients require duplication of authorization related classes, like Resource,
Operation, etc, for adding ACLs CRUD APIs.
> Kafka authorizer is agnostic of principal types it supports, so are the acls CRUD methods
in Authorizer interface. The intent behind is to keep Kafka principal types pluggable, which
is really great. However, this leads to Acls CRUD methods not performing any check on validity
of acls, as they are not aware of what principal types Authorizer implementation supports.
This opens up space for lots of user errors, KAFKA-3097 is an instance.
