Encryption at rest support in x-pack platinum

(Nanda Koothrappahli) #1

According to https://www.elastic.co/subscriptions there is "Encryption at rest support" in Platinum x-pack security (formerly Shield). I cannot find any documentation about it or how to enable or configure it. Can you pls. elaborate on what "Encryption at rest support" for x-pack platinum means and how it effects performance.

Hello Nanda,

Encryption at rest support isn't a feature of Elasticsearch itself, we are referring to filesystem encryption on the actual host running Elasticsearch. If you have a Platinum license we will support your environment with an encrypted filesystem. Without platinum it is possible support would request a problem to be reproduced outside of an encrypted filesystem environment.
