I've recently moved my forum from self-hosting to Invision's cloud service. Previously I was using a locally installed Elasticsearch server, and I'd like to continue using Elasticsearch or Opensearch going forward. I've already installed Opensearch and tested it, but it's not clear to me how to secure it with my now cloud-based forum. Obviously I only want to support connections coming from the forum, but with IPS using CloudFront, the IP addresses used by the forum are dynamic.
I'd like to either use Elasticsearch/Opensearch running on one of my servers or Amazon's ES service if I can do so and it doesn't cost and arm and a leg. Either way, I will need to ensure that only my forum can connect to this service.
Has anyone setup Elasticsearch on Invision's cloud service, and if so, how did you secure it?
