Enabling SSL without xpack auth


I'm trying to setup SSL for my remote cluster. It requires xpack for this feature, however xpack enables password authentication. Is it possible to disable that, while keeping the SSL functionality?


Hi Stanislas,

What are you trying to achieve? Normally, SSL is used to prevent others from reading confidential data which is being transferred. If you enable SSL without password authentication the attacker does not need to sniff the data from the network as he can simply access the server without authentication directly.

Best regards
