TLS (Transport Layer Security)/SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

What is a Transport Layer Security?


TLS/SSL is a cryptographic protocol that provides secure communication over a computer network by encrypting the transmitted data. TLS/SSL offers end-to-end protection for data sent over the network. It is mainly familiar to users via its use in protected web browsing through the padlock icon displayed in web browsers when the session is considered safe. However, you can also use it for other applications such as instant messaging, e-mail, file transfers, instant messaging, video conferencing, voice-over-IP, and other network services such as log collection, in this case.

In the world of NXLog

Safeguarding data is an ever-important thing, where encryption plays a key role. It enables confidential data to be protected while transmitted through different systems.

As the importance of encryption cannot be understated, NXLog provides the im_ssl and om_ssl modules to encrypt log data before sending it through the network. These modules work the same as the im/om_tcp modules, apart from the additional SSL handshake. NXLog uses the OpenSSL library to provide an SSL/TLS transport.
