Can SSL configuration be applied on Splunk Universal Forwarders?

Can SSL configuration be applied on Splunk Universal Forwarders? My understanding is that it was only available on Splunk Heavy Forwarders in the past.

Can someone who has done this before kindly confirm.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The configuration process described in the docs is intended to work for heavy and universal forwarders. I can add a note to the docs to clarify that point.

We've done some elementary SSL configuration (which is now obsolete by POODLE) on universal forwarders. Works same as heavy forwarders.

I have not yet had luck with the highly unofficial method to protect against POODLE by setting the ciphersuite list to a TLS 1.2 specific cipher only.

Seems to me that you can, the documentation here doesn't seem to specify only heavy's

Hi Jeremiahc4,

Thanks for your answer. I have looked at the documentation before posting the question and have concluded the same but I was hoping that someone who has implemented this already can confirm.
