Hi support,

1) We are trying to send logs from a server with NXLog agent installed to SIEM, with SSL/TLS (encrypted traffic)
Would it be possible to only use ONE certificate for each agent?

2) For NXLog manager and the agents is it possible to use only ONE CA for One agent?

Yes, for TLS you only need one cert per agent, and the CA pub cert used to signed them.

Regarding manager, you could use only the common CA and not different individual cert for the agents, but they will show in the UI as untrusted. Please take into account manager is able to create its own CA, and sign all needed certificates.

Do you want to elaborate more on your case?
