Hi @Xiong Duan

  • Kafka can’t assert the identity of client user over a non-secure channel. Thus, Kafka treats all users for such access as an anonymous user (a special user literally named ANONYMOUS).
  • Ranger's public user group is a means to model all users which, of course, includes this anonymous user (ANONYMOUS).

Please check below link for details - https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/RANGER/Kafka+Plugin
