The Elastic Stack security features enable you to easily secure a cluster. With security, you can password-protect your data as well as implement more advanced security measures such as encrypting communications, role-based access control, IP filtering, and auditing. For more information, see Secure a cluster and Configuring Security in Kibana.
To create and manage users, open the menu, then go to Stack Management > Security > Users. You can also change their passwords and roles. For more information about authentication and built-in users, see Setting up user authentication.
To manage roles, open the menu, then go to Stack Management > Security > Roles, or use the Kibana role management APIs. For more information on configuring roles for Kibana, see Granting access to Kibana.
For a more holistic overview of configuring roles for the entire stack, see User authorization.
