Wee writes "I saw this morning that the San Diego Supercomputer Center has released Secure Syslog, a replacement for the standard Linux/UNIX syslog daemon they've been working on for some time. It adds security and performance features (modular design, highly scalable), while retaining backwards compatibility. According to their announcement, it is the first syslog implementation to target "syslog-reliable" (RFC 3195) functionality and it is the first syslog targeted at very high performance and forensically-sound auditing. It's currently under the UC's "free for non-commercial use" license, but they are looking at moving to a completely open license (BSD-style licensing was mentioned). If you have high-traffic systems and you need reliable syslogging, this might be a worth a look. Those needing syslogging over TCP/BEEP, sockets, etc as well as UDP might also want to check it out."
