1. Kafka security features (Kerberos , ACL's) are beta quality code or can
they be used in production?
Because Kafka documentation shows they are of beta code quality.
We need to update the document. But Authorizer feature released as part of
0.9.0. We have lot of deployments using this functionality. Its safe to use
it in production.
As security features first introduced in 0.9.0 we went with a beta label.
Since than there fixes and improvements added.
We've users running in producer and consumer in secure cluster I would say
it safe to use it in production cluster.
