You can configure custom certificates for the syslog listener on Log Decoders. This enables you to put your own trusted cert in place for the syslog listener, while all other functionality uses the pre-installed certs.

Note: This feature applies only to Log Decoders.

To configure custom certificates for the syslog listener:

  1. Go to ADMIN > Services, select the Log Decoder service and The actions menu > View > Explore.
  2. Select Log Decoder > decoder > config.

  3. In the values column next to capture.device.params, use the following parameter to configure the custom cert:

    cert-path=<folder>

    The Log Decoder's SSL syslog connections will use the logdecoder_cert.pem and logdecoder_key.pem files in the <folder> specified.

  4. Press Enter. The change goes into effect on capture restart.
