Secure Syslog with logstash


#1

I'm using tcp input plugin, on windows, to handle SSL for receiving secure syslog but I only have the .cer file for a certification. How can I use this .cer file?

It's a client/server certificate issued by COMODO.

Have you read any of the documentation? What have you tried do far?


(Tim Vernum) #3

.cer is a bit ambiguous .There are a number of different certificate formats which might be named ".cer".
If the file plain text, or binary?
What do the first and last lines look like?

Assuming that your file is only a certificate and doesn't contain a key (which seems likely) then what you want is impossible. You cannot listen over SSL without a key.

I see. Thank you @TimV and @staodd. I'll take a different approach.
