Handling SSL authentication with the basic protocol #91
I'm working for Bearstech, a web hosting company. Using a mutualized carbon server can be messy with lots of users. For now, I add a stunnerl proxy for using authentication with a lightly patched statsd python clone. AMQP is too heavy, I wont to use simple client, post mortem log reader or statsd like tools.
This blog presents my hack :
Is it possible to let carbon handling such security and authentication?
Certainly would be a good addition and certainly possible.
I expect we'd try to allow it to be configured to use encryption-alone as well as encryption with authentication. This could be done in piecemeal fashion - get listeners working and eventually allow carbon-client (used by relay) to use SSL as a sender
