How url redirects is performed in Search Guard

When asking questions, please provide the following information:
I have installed and working on Search guard . I wish to know how the url redirects is achieved. Like Preventing the user from accessing the page by directly entering the url.

I wish to know the control flow

I am using 6.4.2 version of Kibana and elastic search.

  • Search Guard and Elasticsearch version

  • Installed and used enterprise modules, if any

  • JVM version and operating system version

  • Search Guard configuration files

  • Elasticsearch log messages on debug level

  • Other installed Elasticsearch or Kibana plugins, if any

Kibana is based on node.js and hapi. The Kibana plugin basically leverages the hapi built-in authentication semantics:

and adds session management by hapi-auth-cookie:

where the actual authentication is performed by the Search Guard Elasticsearch plugin.
