I would like to scrape logs using Beats (either Filebeat, Metricbeat, etc.) and send them to Logstash or Kafka depending on my use case. Currently, I am leveraging the SSL support, but I would like to use JSON Web Token instead; i.e., the beats should talk to an Authorization server, receive a JWT and then pass it as part of the Auth header bearer token schema when writing logs to an output sink which then validates the JWT.
Is this feature available/being worked on? If not, I would like to contribute, and was hoping if someone could give me pointers on where to start? I also think I would need to implement this in the
libbeat/common/transport directory just like TLS/SSL?
NOTE: I am completely new to the Beats code base, even though I've used beats quite a bit.
