We recently implemented Nessus vulnerability scanning on top of Kibana ports [80, 8080] and found Kibana going down during scanning automatically. Looks like Nessus performing Soap API checks on 8080 port and if Kibana runs with Soap API then there might be a chance that Kibana can go down.
My question is whether kibana uses soap APIs in-built? If so, any recommendations to tackle this. I am using Kibana3.
