Re: SoC: Improve syslogd

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?

I mean a local stream socket as created by
"socket(PF_LOCAL, SOCK_STREAM, 0)" --
instead of "socket(PF_LOCAL, SOCK_DGRAM, 0)",
which is traditionally used for syslog(3).

- 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?

It is (or was) an extension to FreeBSD's syslogd and is licenced under a BSD licence with advertising clause.
