Re: SoC: Improve syslogd

- transport-tls defines the network protocol to send syslog over TLS (instead

In addition to reliable network transport I also consider a modified local
log submission (from syslog(3) to syslogd) to use a stream instead of a
datagram socket, thus providing reliable submission and possible rate limits.
"a stream"? System V STREAMs are not available in NetBSD AFAIK, or what
exactly do you mean?
- syslog-sign defines signature messages for authentication, integrity and
correct sequencing of syslog messages. (For this part I am going to build
upon the afaik only existing implementation by Albert Mietus.)
What license is that existing implementation under?
I cannot comment on the subject at hand itself. Seems there's a pretty
high "research / conquer new grounds" factor in it.
