Using authentication to allow client machines to log to Graylog server


I have a Graylog server setup on a Ubuntu machine. My requirement is to allow our application running on different client machines (on Windows) to authenticate to the Graylog server first and then allow log messages to be sent it. How can this be done?

So, basically even if our application on running on many machines, only those which can authenticate say using some kind of username and password, should be allowed to log to it.

the best option here is to work with certificates for authentication. Only the client that can provide the certificate is able to ingest messages.

That is the way I would use to reach the goal

Hello Jan,

Thanks for your reply. If I were to use certificates for authentication, is there any documentation I could refer to? I basically need the steps involved in it.
