Just set up an ElasticSearch container to use with company's Laravel app. Creating docker-compose.yml and running it is flawless and straight-forward but the issue occurs when I want to firewall this thing so that it's only accessible from one, specific IP of the mentioned Laravel app.
While researching I noticed that plenty of people are having these issues where traffic to port forwarded by Docker gets completely exposed to the public and that they're unable to firewall it properly.
I found several solutions in last 6 hours of which none were working. I assume this has something to do with the way Docker processes/forwards the inbound traffic and my iptables knowledge isn't so vast so that I could understand what's happening on my own.
This is my docker-compose.yml (for what it's worth):
version: '3.4' services: elasticsearch: image: khezen/elasticsearch:6.1.1 container_name: elasticsearch environment: NETWORK_HOST: 0.0.0.0 HOSTS: 127.0.0.1 CLUSTER_NAME: fd-es NODE_NAME: node-1 HEAP_SIZE: 31g HTTP_SSL: "true" ELASTIC_PWD: "somepasswd" HTTP_CORS_ENABLE: "true" HTTP_CORS_ALLOW_ORIGIN: /https?:\/\/localhost(:[0-9]+)?/ ulimits: memlock: soft: -1 hard: -1 volumes: - ./config/elasticsearch.yml:/elasticsearch/config/elasticsearch.yml - ./data:/elasticsearch/data - ./logs:/elasticsearch/logs ports: - 9200:9200 networks: - es-network restart: always networks: es-network: driver: bridge
These are my currently used iptables rules which are to some degree what I want but all traffic to port 9200 from any client is still let through instead of being accessible only from my app:
*filter :INPUT DROP [0:0] :FORWARD DROP [0:0] :OUTPUT ACCEPT [779:162776] :DOCKER - [0:0] -A DOCKER -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -p tcp -m tcp --dport 9200 -j ACCEPT -A DOCKER -o docker0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 9200 -j ACCEPT -A DOCKER -p tcp --dport 9200 -j DROP -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -m conntrack --ctstate INVALID -j DROP -A INPUT -p icmp -m icmp --icmp-type 8 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p udp -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p tcp --tcp-flags FIN,SYN,RST,ACK SYN -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 44344 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p udp -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable -A INPUT -p tcp -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset -A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-proto-unreachable -A INPUT -j DROP
I tried disabling Docker's iptables support and disabling bridge networking and tweaked iptables rules couple of dozen of times but to no avail.
I'd appreciate any suggestion and help to make this happen because I'm out of ideas and search results for this problem.
Thanks in advance!
