ELK deployment

  1. Deploy ELK in order to be able to visualize and analyze the traffic going through the Nginx App Protect web application firewall
kubectl apply -f files/6waf/elk.yaml
  1. In order to connect to our ELK pod, we will need to find the public address of this service:
kubectl get svc elk-web

NAME TYPE CLUSTER-IP EXTERNAL-IP PORT(S) AGE elk-web LoadBalancer a28bd2d8c94214ae0b512274daa06211-2103709514.eu-central-1.elb.amazonaws.com 5601:32471/TCP,9200:32589/TCP,5044:31876/TCP 16h
3. Verify that ELK is up and running by browsing to: http://[ELK-EXTERNAL-IP]:5601/.

Please note that it might take some time for the DNS name to become available.
