OpenBSD 4.1 Syslogd SSLified

Recently I, and my Echothrust partner Panagiotis Efstratiou, were up to some administrative tasks for a Greek university. The term 'university' often implies a complex infrastructure, 'complex infrastructure' means a lot of boxes and eventually a lot of boxes produce a lot of logs.

How can we setup a secure central server? What are the available solutions? In order to answer these questions we have to travel back to the 80s...
