             Summary: Allow password file in server.properties to separate 
'secrets' from standard configs 
                 Key: KAFKA-4294
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4294
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ryan P

Java's keytool(for Windows) allows you to specify the keystore/truststore 
password with an external file in addition to a string argument. 

-storepass:file secret.txt


It would be nice if Kafka could offer the same functionality allowing 
organizations to separate concerns between standard configs and 'secrets'. 

Ideally Kafka would add a secrets file property to the broker config which 
could override any ssl properties which currently exist within the broker 
config. Since the secrets file property is only used to override existing 
SSL/TLS properties the change maintains backward compatibility.
