Describing Kafka security in AsyncAPI

Wednesday, November 17th, 2021

As part of AsyncAPI Conference this week, I ran a session on how to describe Kafka security in AsyncAPI.

The aim of the session was to quickly show how to describe the security configuration of a Kafka cluster in an AsyncAPI document.

And, in reverse, if you’ve been given an AsyncAPI document, to show how to use that to configure a Kafka client or application to connect to the cluster, using the details in the AsyncAPI spec.

The recording and the slides I used are below.
