Pseudonymisation in ELK-Stack


#1

Hey,

i have a running elk enviroment(logstash elasticsearch and kibana). Its working fine so far. The problem is that i have to exchange some data(ip adress, hostname, mac adress, etc.) with pseudonyms befor the logs are displayed in kibana, its a privacy thing.
Are there any approved solutions for automatic pseudonymizing data and a option to reidentifing the data in this case?

thanks and greetings
RickX

If you have access to queries you can write a script that replace fields, overwriting same named fields and replacing few middle caracters with '*'.

Hope it may help.

You're best off doing that with Logstash during processing, there are a number of filters that can handle this.
