BoKS Manager 7.0 features a new audit logging infrastructure compliant with syslog. You can if required relay logs from BoKS Manager to an external syslog server. This article describes how to do this.
Log relaying has been tested with rsyslog and syslog-ng.
To configure relaying of audit logs to an external syslog server:
Note that when relaying is enabled, TLS encryption of the connection between BoKS and the external syslog server is enabled by default. It is not recommended to remove TLS encryption. Only server side authentication is supported, with BoKS being regarded as the syslog client.
For TLS to function, the syslog server must have a host certificate and at least one CA certificate(s), with no password protecting the private keys and in .pem format. The CA certificate(s) must be imported into the BoKS database in order to verify the external syslog server.
