from Thursday 20 June to Friday 21 June 2019.

   Elasticsearch - Securing a search engine while maintaining usability


Beginner & novice level
Linux Friday from 11:15 til 12:05

Elasticsearch - being an integral part of the Elastic Stack - is known for its full-text search and analytics ability.

Elasticsearch is running on tens of thousands of nodes world-wide, so despite all the functionality squeezed into new releases, we also have to think about security, all the time. This talk will cover different aspects of Elasticsearch, explain some features and (sometimes unpopular) decisions and the reasoning behind. This talk will cover:

  • Usage of the Java Security Manager including integration with plugins
  • Production vs. Development mode
  • System Call Filtering
  • Our own scripting language called Painless, which superseded all other scripting languages like MVEL, Groovy or Javascript

The goal of this talk is not (only) to show off Elasticsearch features. You start thinking about these non-functional requirements in your own applications as well!
