The HDF release does support interacting with Kerberized Kafka instances as found within the HDP stack. This is because HDP added support for Kerberized Kafka in advance of the community supporting it (Kafka 0.8.x). In Apache Kafka world now (0.9x) there is Kerberos support.

So,

- Apache NiFi supports non Kerberized Kafka clusters today.

- HDF releases of NiFi have patched support for Kerberized Kafka clusters in HDP

- Upcoming Apache NiFi releases will add support for the 0.9x Apache Kafka kerberos model

Thanks
