Nifi Kafka Confluent - SSL handshake failed

New Contributor

Hi, I'm trying to make a kafka consumer working, but I am having this issue about SSL Handshake failed. Any ideas ?

The above exception you are encountering with TLS is caused by a lack of a complete trust chain in the mutual TLS handshake.

On each side (server and client) of your TLS connection, you will have a keystore containing a PrivateKey entry (Will support and extended key usage (EKU) of clientAuth, serverAuth, or both) that either your client or server will use to identify itself.   That PrivateKey entry will have an owner and issuer DN associated with it.   The issuer is the signer for the owner.  Each side will also have a truststore (just another keystore by a different name containing a bunch of TrustedCertEntry(s)) that would need to contain the trustedCertEntry for the issuer/signer of your PrivateKeyEntry.  It is also very common that the issuer/signer trustedCertEntry has an owner DN and Issuer DN that do not match. This means that that issuer was just an intermediate Certificate Authority (CA) and was issued/signed by another CA.  As such the truststore would need to also contain the TrustedCertEntry for that next level issuer CA.  This continues until you reach the root CA trustedCertEntry where the owner and issuer have the same DN.  This is known as the rootCA for your PriavteKeyEntry.   Having all the intermediate CA(s) and the root CA, means you have the complete trust chain in your truststore.  This process applies in both directions in the mutual TSL handshake.  Meaning your clientAuth certificate presented by your Kafka Consumer must have its complete trust chain in the Kafka servers truststore.  And the ServerAuth certificate presented by your server must have its complete trust chain present in the truststore used by your client Kafka consumer.  

Note: I am over simplifying this mutual TLS handshake (private keys themselves are never shared and there is more in the server and client hello exchanges in the TLS handshake), but intent is to focus at a high level on what your issue is caused by specifically.

So to get past your issue, you need to make sure the truststore used by your client and server side contain all the CAs trust chain trustedCertEntries.

Hi Matt, thanks a lot for the explanation. I changed the path from truststore.jks to $JAVA_HOME\lib\security\cacerts on the StandardRestrictedSSLContextService settings , and worked fine !!!
