What is the password when I use elasticsearch?

Hi, I have a problem with the password of elasticsearch. I'm trying to study Kibana map through a tutorial video.(for South Korea)
I need to use Suricata logs but I found that I have to modify my password like below. The problem is that I don't know my password, and I don't even think I've made one.
How to set my password for Elasticsearch?

Per default, no authentication is enabled in elasticsearch.
You can enable security if you want.

So if you didn't configure authentication you can just comment out the username and password setting.

You should definitely be using Security. Check out https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/security-settings.html.

where can I find the authentication file? in which directory?
I'm using elasticsearch and kibana in my localhost (Mac)

I saw about x-pack setting, but I couldn't find anything related to x-pack security in elasticsearch.yml. Which file can I find about this?

Is xpack security thing not free? above basic level?

You will need to install the default distribution, not the -oss one to get access to things.
