Secure Kibana access


I'm trying to secure Kibana access according to the company's restrictions.

The best authentication is to habilitate users and admin users from LDAP server.

The company did not accept to buy X-pack solution (Shield).

The only thing I have today is a basic .htpasswd (Nginx) file but the drawbacks of this solution are :

  • No control on password complexity and regular changes
  • New account for the user
  • Admin have to manage accounts, passwords

Do you have any solution to set it in place ?
Kibana gets sensitive information and users must be authenticated !

Many thanks for your help.


Our solution toward security is only part of x-pack. I guess there are 3rd party open source solutions , but i am really not familiar with any of them.
