Syslog using TLS

Is it at all possible to configure the syslog from the MX devices to use some form of TLS encryption instead of UDP? Just seems to be the more secure option.

Re: Syslog using TLS

It doesn't, and I've never seen an implementation of syslog that uses TLS.  That would be pretty rare.

 

You could consider building a VPN between the MX and the Syslog server location, and run the syslog data over the VPN.

Pretty sure it doesn't support TLS

Are you sending syslog to a public IP?

If its an internal syslog server then it should be secure enough since its either LAN or going over the VPN traffic
