Is Filebeat an java application , whether it uses java security providers for secure connection


Hi ,

is filebeat an java application or C++ binary ?? because from the rpm extract i couldnt conclude much.

If it is an java based application does it use providers for establishing secure connections ??

or if it is an c++ based application i hope for ssl connection it uses the openssl . How is it linked with ??
where can i find to which version of openssl it is currently linked with ??

I am working in an linux based environment .

None of the above - Filebeat is developed in Go.


Thanks a lot christian., Out of curiosity , how secure connections are implemented inside beats?? Does it uses openssl library ?

That I do not know, so will leave that to someone with more in-depth knowledge.

It does not use openssl. The stdlib has it's own TLS implementation.
