It may be good to bring this up in KIP-76 discussion:

> 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.
