I have installed ELK 7.17.9 and Kibana 7.17.9 , i would want to make the kibana url as https

Hi Team,

I have installed ELK 7.17.9 and all other components related to it. the cluster is up and working fine. I would want to make the kibana url as https. how can i do it .

there are some questions regarding it.

Enables SSL and paths to the PEM-format SSL certificate and SSL key files, respectively.

These settings enable SSL for outgoing requests from the Kibana server to the browser.

server.ssl.enabled: false
server.ssl.certificate: /path/to/your/server.crt
server.ssl.key: /path/to/your/server.key

I would need a server.crt for that server where kibana is installed and a server.key for that cert.

or do i need any other certs to have the SSL Working . please suggest


This is a very old version of ELK I would recommend you to update it.

That being said, you can find how to enable TLS here.

Basically, kibana takes responses from outside and sends them to elasticsearch. So for best use case of security, you need connections between kibana and elasticsearch to be secured. You should even go further and have your connection to kibana to be TLS as well.
