Can SSL be configured when sending data to Universal Forwarder through TCP connection from an external source?

Hi,
Data is sent to Splunk Universal Forwarder (UF) through the TCP connection. From UF, data is forwarded to indexers. As we know SSL is supported by Splunk when Data is sent to Indexers. But can SSL be configured when sending data to Splunk UF through TCP connection from an external source?

As per Get data from TCP and UDP ports refer to :

Configure a TCP input over SSL

[tcp-ssl:]

Use this stanza type if you receive
encrypted, unparsed data from a
forwarder or third-party system. Set
to the port on which the
forwarder or third-party system is
sending unparsed, encrypted data.

So yes the universal forwarder can use a tcp-ssl stanza to receive encrypted SSL traffic as a listener...
