No matter what technology we are working with, we always need to be mindful of security. Big data platforms are certainly no exception, as they can contain massive amounts of sensitive data that must be protected. Elasticsearch has made securing your cluster very easy with native security configurations and tools to ensure that your data is only accessible to authorized users. In this hands-on lab, you will do the following:

  • Encrypt the transport network of an Elasticsearch cluster
  • Enable user authentication in Elasticsearch
  • Set built-in Elasticsearch user passwords
What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
