Starting with Elastic Stack 6.8 and 7.1, security features like TLS encrypted communication, role-based access control (RBAC), and more are available for free within the default distribution.
In addition to the availability of these security features, Elastic has also announced the alpha release of Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes (ECK), the official Kubernetes Operator for Elasticsearch and Kibana.
Security is an integral part of cluster operations, especially in shared and multi-tenant environments like Kubernetes. By moving the core security features into the default distribution of Elastic Stack, we can ensure that all clusters launched and managed by ECK are secured by default at creation time, without any additional burden on the admins. This experience also lines up well with the secure-by-default experience that users have always had on our Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud.
Tom Grabowski (Elastic Product Management), and Mike Heldebrant (Elastic Solutions Architect) will elaborate on the announced security core features, and how they have enabled a secure release of Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes.
As in past events, food and refreshments will be available, and time set aside for people to mingle and meet with our speakers.
