The Shield plugin for Kibana was not introduced until Shield 2.2/Kibana 4.4, so for your version there is only an Elasticsearch plugin to install.

The links you pointed to outlines which privileges a kibana role need to have and how to set it up. You can then control which data a user is allowed to access through Shield configuration. Kibana just passes through the user credentials entered in the browser and the roles that user is associated with will determine what data he can access.

I would however recommend that you consider upgrading as there are a lot of improvements with respect to Shield configuration and Kibana integration.
