Currently we are using syslog communication without any security. That is using UDP protocol with the server listening on port number 514. This is unsecure.
I want to use syslog over TLS that is over TCP .
As of now in my project syslogd daemon is used. I am planning to use stunnel to achieve this.
I have few questions. Please clarify
* To support stunnel, syslogd should be on TCP and not on UDP?
* Is stunnel is a daemon ?
* My understanding is syslogd forwards messages to the stunnel local portal at port 61514.
The local stunnel forwards data via the network to port 60514 to its remote peer.
* I assume stunnel-5.26(stunnel-5.26.tar.gz) is the latest version and this can be used on linux
