Subject Re: Encrypt Tomcat 4.1 log and log with MD5
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2007 10:19:13 GMT
md5 is a one way hash - so "encrypting" your log files with md5 will 
yield unreadable files

Tomcat out of the box doesn't have anything like this. You would need to 
do the following write your own log4j appenders (or whatever they are 
called) which encrypt the data. Since log4j can (IIRC) can also capture 
System.out - you could probably use the appender you write.
