DevOoops: Elasticsearch

Notes from the Devoops talk on Elastic Search

Elasticsearch Provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents.

*GET request to port 9200 will show version
"version" : {
"number" : "1.2.4"

No Authentication (initially)

Can search stored data via HTTP API

Update data with PUT request

Join an open cluster and receive all data

RCE prior to 1.2.0 (CVE-2014-3120)
RCE prior to 1.5.0* (CVE-2015-1427)



Searching via curl/browser is cumbersome...Kibana FTW

Edit config.js to point to open Elasticsearch

Open index.html in local browser or host on a server

Viewing the content of the document

Import your own data and visualize

Elasticsearch solutions:

Apply authentication if possible

Segment elasticsearch from Corp (and the public in general)

Be aware of the data you put in elasticsearch
-->anyone can search it
