Can file beat ship logs over https?

Can it communicate over https or requires binary protocol? and what are the privileges it requires?

Filebeat can use https. For more details see here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/libbeat/current/_https_and_basic_authentication.html

More details on the TLS options can be found here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/libbeat/current/configuration.html#configuration-output-tls

Filebeat needs read access to the files you want to be sent.
