Protecting Your Data in Elasticsearch

Don’t get hacked. You need to prepare for security risks against your Elasticsearch instances including information leakage, unintentional data modification, or hackers trying to take over your Elasticsearch nodes. Any of these would result in the kind of day no one wants to experience.

In this video, Steve Kearns, Sr. Director Product Management, gives an overview of the Elastic approach to security, including conversations about the Java Security Manager, Painless scripting language, and binding to localhost by default.


Jay Modi, Elastic security engineer, will then give an overview of the security features of X-Pack. Jay will discuss advanced security capabilities and configurations including, role-based access control, encryption, and audit logging.
