Authenticating Kafka with username and password




We have configured Kafka with SASL_PLAINTEXT authentication protocol, someone wants to ingest into Kafka using username and password, they say it's the only way to authenticate from their KafkaClient.


Cloudera documentation only gives principal/keytab configuration.


Is there a way to configure Kafka to allow multiple authenticating configuration, as in https://docs.confluent.io/3.0.0/kafka/sasl.html#enabling-multiple-sasl-mechanisms-in-a-broker ??


Thank you
