sg_config.yml (the only thing I believe I changed was the authc section):
internalProxies: ‘192.168.0.10|192.168.0.11’ # regex pattern
type: ldap # NOT FREE FOR COMMERCIAL USE
In my elasticsearch.yml I have searchguard.ssl.http.clientauth_mode: OPTIONAL
The only logfile that changes after I set the tls-logging instructions and issue curl is elasticsearch.log
I have attached the entire file, the only thing that is logged when I run the curl command is
[2018-07-11T09:16:33,110][DEBUG][c.f.s.a.BackendRegistry ] Try to extract auth creds from basic http authenticator
I hope this helps. Once again, thank you so much for your time and effort! Great support for this product.

So from the output it seems that you also run an HTTP Basic authentication domain. That’s where the WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=“Search Guard” comes from. And it also shows that the “challenge” flag in this authentication domain is set to true.
Can you please post the full content of your sg_config.yml here?
For a quick check:
- Make sure that the client cert authentication domain comes first in the chain (order: 0)
- If you also need Basic Authentication, this should come second (order: 1)
The check if you enabled TLS client certificates on HTTP level in elasticsearch.yml:
If this is all correct, please set the log level to debug by following these instructions:
Then restart Elasticsearch, issue the curl call again, and post the ES logfiles.

Maybe my issue is in how I am trying to access the cluster via curl?
I first tried to convert the key file to jkcs #8 as I saw somewhere that the key may not be in that format. I issued this command:
“openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -in demouser.key.pem -out demouser.key -nocrypt”
I then verified that the new key requires no password and matches the old one.
I then issued the curl command:
curl -vk --cert ./demouser.crtfull.pem --key ./demouser.key “https://localhost:9200”
and got this output:

Hm, your mapping seems correct. For certificate-based authentication, the username is the DN of the certificate so ‘CN=demouser’ would be the right one.
If you use certificate-based authentication, the internal_users.yml is not really relevant, and therefore also the user attributes entries are not relevant. The general process for cert based auth is like:
- Receive the client TLS certificate from the HTTP request (dependant on the ‘searchguard.ssl.http.clientauth_mode’ setting, can be NONE, OPTIONAL or REQUIRED)
- Validate the certificate
- Map the DN of the certificate to Search Guard roles

sg and es versions: 6.3.0
So I am trying to set up TLS on my cluster. I currently have my single node cluster running using the truststore and keystore files provided with the online cert generator. I am now trying to use the demouser certificates also provided to access the cluster through curl. I tried to follow the documentation to set up client cert authentication. Within sg_config.yml I have this:
Now, I am not 100% sure what to actually put in the username_attribute field. In my sg_roles_mapping.yml I have this:
I am also not sure what to put in for users. The name of my certificate and key that I am trying to get sg to authorize are demouser.crtfull.pem and demouser.key.pem. Using openssl x509 shell command on the certificate file I get this:

I am just confused as how I can get searchguard to authenticate this certificate and key pair.
