Subject Re: Adding SSL peer cert info to AvroSource
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2014 02:44:56 GMT
If it's using a signed cert then what do you need to put into the filter?
You mean a list of allowed peers? If so then you could either try to
piggyback on the IpFilter and make it accept hostnames, or yes add another
filter config option such as hostFilter.
