Securing Your Installation

Learn about security considerations and security-related tasks you should be aware of when deploying Elastic Cloud Enterprise:

  • Security Considerations - Covers information about current limitations, access control, encryption, and possible attack vectors.
  • Generate Roles Tokens - For automation purposes, generate a new ephemeral or persistent token with the right role permissions, so that you can install ECE on hosts and add the right roles at the same time.
  • Revoke Roles Tokens - Roles tokens enable additional hosts to join an ECE installation. If a token is no longer needed, it should be revoked to improve security.
  • Manage Security Certificates - Provide your own certificates for ECE to avoid a security warning when connecting to the Cloud UI or when using the API over HTTPS.
  • Retrieve User Passwords - Retrieve the credentials for the administration console users root and readonly.
  • Reset User Passwords - Reset the passwords for the root and readonly administration console users that you use to log into the Cloud UI.
