Where to hook elasticsearch authentication plugin

I want to write a basic elasticsearch authentication plugin without involing x-pack,but i am confused where to begin(which java file i need to extend).
Can you guys give me some hint.

Thank you.

I found this blog about authentication plugin https://qbox.io/blog/secure-elasticsearch-authentication-plugin-tutorial
But this is deprecated and is for es-2.5,where do i start ,can you briefly explain it.

The best way would be to go with the source. Start taking a look at the Plugin and its subclasses, that are listed in the javadoc comment. From there on you can pick what you need to implement based on your security requirements.

Is it possible to modify rest controller for authentication.
