Securing Beats at Scale — Hysolate

  1. The transport layer itself must be secure and encrypted
  2. The receiving end must be able to authenticate the sender in a secure manner, at scale
  3. The receiving end must be able to withstand (D)DoS attacks
  • Elasticsearch , for storing the collected telemetry events; and -
  • , as an additional preprocessing pipeline.
  1. Elasticsearch and Logstash support TLS as a server.
  2. Elasticsearch supports multiple authentication options: TLS client certificates, API key, and user credentials (basic authentication). Logstash supports only TLS client certificates with the Lumberjack protocol. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to rotate and distribute them to all devices that are sending telemetry data.
  3. Elasticsearch and Logstash do not provide anti-(D)DoS protection for unauthenticated requests.
