Is the data stored by Lucene in file system readable/is plain text or is encrypted/unreadable?

(Priyanka Sharma) #1

I need to store some sensitive data in elasticsearch.
Since data is actually stored by Lucene in file-system, is it in plain text/Json format that is readable if i access the file system directly or is it encrypted/garbled to make it unreadable?

It's readable.
You might use dm-crypt if you want to encrypt your FS.
