Sriharsha Chintalapani commented on KAFKA-1686:
-----------------------------------------------

Hi [~gwenshap] sorry for the late reply. I haven't started on this JIRA and probably for another
week atleast I won't be able to work on it.
" It looks like the first step must be to authenticate Kafka broker  itself with Kerberos".

Yes this can be a separate piece and make it into its own JIRA. I'll look into KAFKA-1684
and update the JIRA soon with implementation details.

> Implement SASL/Kerberos authentication.
> To do this we will need to introduce a new SASLRequest and SASLResponse pair to the client
protocol. This request and response will each have only a single byte[] field and will be
used to handle the SASL challenge/response cycle. Doing this will initialize the SaslServer
instance and associate it with the session in a manner similar to KAFKA-1684.
> When using integrity or encryption mechanisms with SASL we will need to wrap and unwrap
bytes as in KAFKA-1684 so the same interface that covers the SSLEngine will need to also cover
the SaslServer instance.
