Mutual Authentication and Encryption With Rsyslog

I am trying to get mutual authentication working between a syslog-ng
server and an Rsyslog client, using startssl.com issued certificates.
The client does properly authenticate the server, but syslog-ng does not
recognize the client as trusted.

Server info:
------------

# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)

# /usr/local/syslog-ng/sbin/syslog-ng --version
syslog-ng 3.2.4
Installer-Version: 3.2.4
Revision:
ssh+git://bazsi <at> git.balabit//var/scm/git/syslog-ng/syslog-ng-ose--mainline--3.2#master#ef7b91e4a1b1f9628c66138b4ae83de7e4c697c6

GSOC : syslog-ng as a command line tool

Hi,

I am a final year undergraduate student of Computer Science from India,
I love linux, C and the Open Source community.

I coded for The Linux Foundation in GSOC 2013 and would love to code for syslog-ng this year.
I've been using linux since school and throughout college. I'm quite experienced with C and love how simple yet incredibly powerful it is.

Here are my profiles: 
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anshulkushwaha

For this summer, I'd like to implement "syslog-ng as a command line tool". I match the requirements well and this project will help me sharpen my skills.

It would be great if I can get some pointers to start this.

Thank You,

Sincerely, 
Anshul Kushwaha

GSoC - 2015

Dear GSoC aspirants, first of all thank you for answering our GSoC call. Some of you asking how could start with the project. First, you have to choose a project. After that it is highly recommended to contact with the project's mentor. You should get enough information from your mentor to create your proposal. Ask all the questions you need to be answered. After you sent your proposal, you will get a small task. I suggest you to try to be as independent as you can: if you have a concrete idea, want to change something, just tell it to your mentor. (eg.: if you don't know c++ but know python and want to create a gui config editor: it is OK, the target is to have a nice GUI tool and not writing softwares in c++ :-) ) br, Laszlo Budai

GSoC Introduction

Hi everyone,

My name is Bence Tamás Gedai, and I am an undergraduate student at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. I'm interested in the  "Configuration visualization" project.

I have been coding in C for about a year, but I think I have got the fundamental skills needed for this project. I am familiar with C# and c++ as well. The thing that caught my attention about this project is graph theory, I am really interested in his field and in algorithms related to that.

I have alredy worked on a small issue at syslog-ng, so I know the basics of the code.

I tried to contact the mentioned mentor, Viktor Tusa via tusa <at> balabit.com, but my mails were sent back. I have got a few questions about the project so can you direct me to the proper place?

Thanks in advance,
Bence Tamás Gedai

GSoC2015 Project: syslog-ng configuration editor using Qt

Hi,

I'm Damitha Kithmal , final year undergraduate of University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I'm interested about the project idea of "Project: syslog-ng configuration editor using Qt". I have been working with Qt for more than two years. I also have done my internship in Qt at Millennium Information Technology, which is the largest C++ company in Sri Lanka. I'm also familiar with Squish Qt GUI Testing tool. I'm currently learning about the syslog-ng and hope it will be an advantage to do gsoc with syslog-ng.


Thank You

GSOC 2015: Student Introduction

Hello,

My name is Hitesh Ramani, and I'm pursuing my Master's in Technology from Hyderabad Central University, Hyderabad, India. I've gone through the Projects page and the Project that caught my attention particularly was syslog-ng for Python.

I, as my Post Graduation project, am currently working on Postgres, which is a C based ORDBMS, trying to extend it's functionalities. I also have a 2.5 year working experience with Python and am well versed with C and shell. Moreover, I have used Cython on a very small scale project in one of my labs so I've the basic knowledge of it.

Please guide me as per how should I start with the project.

Thank You.
Hitesh Ramani

Regarding syslog-ng server monitoring mobile application

Hi,

I am a junior undergraduate student currently pursuing computer science and engineering. I was looking at the GSoC ideas for syslog-ng and I found the idea of syslog-ng server monitoring with mobile app quite interesting.

My skill set includes Java, C/C++, Python and Android. I have worked with android earlier and I have developed about 5 applications, 2 end-to-end and 3 prototypes. I have also been coding in Java for about 3 years now and have a pretty good understanding of the same. I do not have any coding knowledge regarding SSL control socket but I have worked with socket in C for a networks project, so I believe I can pick it up as and when required. As for syslog-ng, I installed and worked around it a little bit and I found myself to be quite comfortable with it at a user level. I believe building a mobile application would be relatively less codebase dependent and more couple in a API sort of way.

I would like to contribute to this project over the summer. Could you please guide me where should I start? May be wireframing or a small demo app?

Thank you

Sincerely,
Amar Budhiraja

Gsoc 2015 Queries

Dear Sir,
             I am Nikhil.R, second year student in Birla Institute of Technology,Pilani, India. I am interested in applying for Google summer of Code(GSoc) under The syslog-ng project. I have around two years of experience in web development and I am currently working for startup also as a backend developer.  I am very proficient in Javascript, PHP, Python, Lua, SQL, HTML5 and  CSS3. I have done many side projects using the same tools.

Link to github profile: https://github.com/rnikhil275
This should give you a good idea of the experience I have in this field. I have uploaded around 80% of my projects there. 

I am interested in:
Project: syslog-ng configuration editor web based

I want to learn more about the project and if possible submit a small demo, before submitting a final proposal. I also want to get some guidance on how these should be implemented so that I can start as soon as possible. 

I just wanted to know more about the project so that I can show you guys a prototype before the final proposal submission. I want to do some simple tasks first showing that I will be the right candidate for the project. 

Thank You,
Nikhil.R

[GSOC 2015]:syslog-ng configuration editor using Qt

Hi mentors,
After researching a while and going through documentation and man-pages of syslog-ng, syslog-ng.conf, syslog-ng-ctl, I assume that you are looking for a application that can help the user to enable, disable ,add, remove, update certain features of syslog-ng using the Gui.

I would be using Qt with Python.

Please correct me if i am wrong and add if something is missing.

Regards 
Siddharth Singh
