Conf Kibana and shield



Hi all,

I've followed all the action to use SSl with Elastic and Kibana but it doesn't work.

I've generated keystore, certificat and key (first time for me) but when i must filled the kibana conf i don't understand what i have to put for the options :

server.ssl.key: /path/to/your/server.key
server.ssl.cert: /path/to/your/server.crt /path/to/your/cacert.pem

Someone could explain me ?

I don't put all the actions i made because it will be a paste of the documentation.
However first i made a CA -->
then i follow that ->

and finally that -->

Thx all

First sorry for late reply. Just to confirm, you are using elastic serach 2.3 ?


Don't worry thx for your reply, and yes i use 2.3 version

(Peter Pisljar) #4 needs to point to your cacert.pem file you generated in the first step. this is used to encrypt communication between kibana server and elastic search.

server.ssl.key and .cert are different certs that you use to encrypt kibana server - browser communication.


Ok, thx.

So in short, what link (of my initial message) do i have to use for each option plz ?

I'm really sorry but i think i lack information on SSL
