How to Secure ElasticSearch

Hi,

We are using Google Compute Engine to deploy our applications (running on
top of CentOS Linux).

Is there any written reference on the best practices to secure our
ElasticSearch instance running on the cloud?

Best regards

Unfortunately not, this is left as an exercise to the administrator.
People have used reverse proxies (nginx/apache) and iptables though, if
that helps.

There are a few transport plugins that do that as well, see
