Session cookies will be transmitted over insecure connections


(Willemdh) #1

Hello,

On my Kibana 6.1 test server I get this on kibana service restart

Dec 18 15:10:04 srvelkodv02 kibana: {"type":"log","@timestamp":"2017-12-18T14:10:04Z","tags":["security","warning"],"pid":20636,"message":"Session cookies will be transmitted over insecure connections. This is not recommended."}

kibana.yml:

server.port: 5601
server.host: "localhost"
server.name: "srvelkodv02"

xpack.security.sessionTimeout: 3600000
xpack.security.encryptionKey: "8513e214e7"
xpack.reporting.encryptionKey: "1fc9ecdac755"

Can I secure connections with the open source Kibana? if so, how? I'm using Nginx proxy atm.

Grtz

Willem

I think you will need to configure kibana to use SSL: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/production.html
