Encrypted automatic log transfer from log collector MCAS


I am in the process of setting up Ubuntu docker image as a log collector in the on-premise for automatic log transfer. How do I enable encrypted log transfer from log collector to MCAS. How do I ensure the data in transit and during rest is encrypted.

Hi Jagadesh,


Thank you for reaching out.

Any data that is going out from your log collector is fully encrypted -

  1. The log transfer from the log collector to MCAS is done using HTTPS connection (TLS encrypted connection).
  2. Uploaded logs are temporarily stored in MCAS storage and are encrypted at-rest, based on the built-in implementation of encryption at-rest used by Azure storage.
