      Description

      Currently, there is no TLS support in SyslogAppender.
      It would be very nice if one could send encrypted syslog messages to syslog daemons.

      I think the use cases are obvious: you want to protect your syslog messages against masquerade, modification and disclosure.

        It contains the patch, the certificates to test and a sample log4j2.xml configuration.

        The JavaDoc and the site documentation has not been written yet, but if you say that the TLSSyslogAppender can be the part of the Log4j2, I will write them.

        Any thoughts on it? It would be great if the log4j2 contained this feature in the GA release.

        I was able to apply the patch after some editing. All the files were missing license headers and I have to fix some checkstyle issues and create some documentation.

        Ralph, can I help you in anything? I want to wait until LOG4J2-355 will be applied, because it will broke again this patch and I don't want to recreate it too many times.

        Added in revision 1520406 with some changes (mainly missing license headers, missing javadoc and doc, and integration with other changes that had been committed). Please verify and close.
