Need to use basic version ( free version) of ELK stack with security features

I am naive to ELK stack. I wanted to unable the basic security feature in EKL stack. It should ask me user ID and password when I am running ES or Kibana or Logstash. With the initial free trial license, I could do it, but the moment I reverted to free/version (after the license expired) It's ignoring user ID and password provided. Giving me the following error

C:\proscan\ELK\elasticsearch-7.0.1\bin>elasticsearch-setup-passwords.bat interactive
Unexpected response code [403] from calling GET
It doesn't look like the X-Pack security feature is available on this Elasticsearch node.
Please check if you have installed a license that allows access to X-Pack Security feature.
ERROR: X-Pack Security is not available.

When I google around I found the link which says basic security feature is free.

I am using 7.0.1 EKL stack.

How I can use the basic version (Free version) of ELK stack to create the production environment application?

How I can enable SSL/TSL/basic authentication in free version ?

Did you check this documentation ?

BTW it's only available from 7.1.
