Absolutely - this is something I need to get round to.  Concentrated on
getting the data back and in a good state
for a start.  Figured I'd get round to securing stuff at a later point.

I've built mine completely separately and then brought them closer
together by running Logstash on the IPA server.
Not sure if there should be an exclusive ownership going on.  IPA could
create an initial setup, but there's huge
room for creating more complex systems that IPA might want to leave well

ELK is trivial to set up as a simple cluster.  It gets more complicated
to do it "properly", but what I've got
going at the moment fits along the trivial lines, but provides an
extremely robust database.
