I have the ELK stack installed with filebeat configured on the client machine. How do I go about securing the connection.
I've tried here:-
This comes with a message advising that the key should be certificate type pkcs8. I convert the certificate to pkcs8 and change the config to poin to the .p8 and I receive the same error.
I then try following:-
copying the generated /etc/ca.crt, /etc/client.crt, /etc/client.key files to the client and changing the config to
output.logstash: hosts: ["logs.mycompany.com:5044"] ssl.certificate_authorities: ["/etc/ca.crt"] ssl.certificate: "/etc/client.crt" ssl.key: "/etc/client.key"
This time I receive an error message advising that the pem file cannot be found, even though it's in the correct location, specified in the config file. I have given the file 0600 permissions.
Has anyone managed to secure the connection?
