Rsyslog and Loganalyzer

Postby mmark751969 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:45 pm

We are looking for syslog over tls/ssl support. Specifically, sending syslog's from multiple branch office devices over the internet but encrypted with ssl/tls, to a central syslog server at main site. Can rsyslog do this? If so, will i need to install rsyslog at branch site and relay to the rsyslog server at main site as encrypted with ssl/tls?

Yes, rsyslog can do this, you should also look at using the RELP protocol so that you don't loose messages in flight when you have network hiccups.

you would need to have rsyslog on both ends of the connection, but rsyslog has been the default on most linux systems for many years, so it may already be installed. You may find that you need to upgrade to a more current version than the distro provides for the machines that are your per-site relays and your central receivers, just due to all the fixes and new features that have been added since the version the distro provides.
