passlogd is a purpose-built sniffer for capturing syslog messages in transit
passlogd is a purpose-built sniffer for capturing syslog messages in transit. This allows for backup logging to be performed on a machine with no open ports. Useful if your log server is compromised or you don't want to sift through a terabyte of sniffer logs. Passlogd is currently under development, so check back here for bugfixes, new features, etc. If you find bugs, please let me know, and by all means, send me a patch.
