NIFI - receive syslog based on TLS

NIFI - receive syslog based on TLS

Explorer

Hi, 

I need to receive Syslog events from Mcafee server but the problem is that Mcafee can send it only in TLS. Meaning that somehow i need to generate a certificate (can be self-sign) and I'm guessing that the public certificate should be shared with Mcafee.

 

1. I have noticed that there is NIFI tools that I can use. The tools can be run in standalone or server/client - Which mode I should use for that purpose 0 as mentioned I can use self-sign

2. In Syslog listener there is a configuration for SSL but it required Keystore and truststore - are these output of the nifi tool?
