SSL communication between Filebeat 5.6.2 and Kafka 0.10


(Subash Kunjupillai) #1

Hi,

We are sending filebeat output to Kafka running in 3 nodes. We have enabled 2-way SSL communication in Kafka. Now we want to make filebeat (client for kafka) to be authenticated by Kafka.

My doubt is how to update filebeat.yml with ssl certificate for each host? Because we have provided a list of hosts in filebeat.yml.

output.kafka:
 enabled: true
 version: 0.10.0.0
 hosts: ["host1:9093", "host2:9093", "host3:9093"]
 topic: 'TOPIC1'

Can someone please help with this?

Regards,
Subash Kunjupillai

You can provide the certificates using the ssl option of Kafka output. See here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/master/kafka-output.html#_literal_ssl_literal_3
