SSL Certificate for Kafka running in Confluent Cloud

I’m connecting to Kafka Broker in the Confluent Cloud ( I’m getting this error when I try to read a Kafka topic from my Flink job PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

This problem might be solved if I register Kafka Broker certificate as trusted on my laptop. But how can I do it if I use Kafka through Confluent Cloud and I don’t see any option to download the certificate?


have a look at

Confluent Cloud is using the ISRG Root X1 Root CA, this CA is required to be part of your trust store
