Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-4611) Support custom authentication mechanism
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 18:52:58 GMT
mahendiran chandrasekar created KAFKA-4611:

             Summary: Support custom authentication mechanism
                 Key: KAFKA-4611
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4611
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: clients
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: mahendiran chandrasekar

Currently there are two login mechanisms supported by kafka client.
1) Default Login / Abstract Login which uses JAAS authentication
2) Kerberos Login

Supporting user defined login mechanism's would be nice. 

This could be achieved by removing the limitation from [here](https://github.com/apache/kafka/blob/0.10.0/clients/src/main/java/org/apache/kafka/common/security/authenticator/LoginManager.java#L44)
... Instead get custom login module implemented by user which implements Login  from the configs
and give users the option to implement custom login mechanism. 

I am running into an issue in setting JAAS authentication system property on all executors
of my spark cluster. Having custom mechanism to authorize kafka would be a good improvement
for me
