Hello ,

I need to implement audit logs that are secure , by encrypting the same. Currently the audit logs are written using log4j .

Is anyone aware of any extension packages for log4j which takes care of encrypting the logs.

Regards

You are not the first one with this problem:

Bottom line: write your own appender. (I'm not aware of an existing solution).
