Hi, hackers:

Red Hat's "star" developer, Lennart Poettering, is porting Windows
Event Log to GNU/Linux :)

Regardless of his stupid arguments, let's talk about something
trivial. How about to implement RFC 5848 in our syslogd? It adds the
encryption to the existing syslog message layer, and increase the
security in transferring.

Albert Mietus made a nice presentation in 2002

Not sure whether his code is accessible or not.
