NAME
       slogencrypt - Encrypt existing plain text log files using the syslog-ng
       secure logging environment

SYNOPSIS
       slogencrypt [options] [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
       The slogencrypt is used to encrypt plain	text log file using an
       existing	secure logging environment. Using this utility,	log files
       obtained	from a previous	installation of	syslog-ng or another logging
       system can be transferred to a secure logging environment. The order of
       the log entries is preserved. Encrypting	plain text log files using an
       existing	secure logging environment, requires the current encryption
       key to be supplied in order to preserve consistency.

       General call sequence: slogencrypt -k <key file>	-m <MAC	file> <new key
       file> <new MAC file> <plain text	log> <output file> [counter]

ARGUMENTS
       new key file
	   The file that will contain the new current encryption key after
	   successful encryption.

       new MAC file
	   The file receiving the new current message authentication code
	   (MAC) of the	secure encrypted destination after encryption. In case
	   an existing file is supplied, new entries will be appended.

       input log file
	   The plain text log file that	will be	encrypted using	the secure
	   logging environment.

       output log file
	   The file that will contain the encrypted log	entries	from the
	   supplied plain text log file	after encryption.

       counter
	   The current log entry counter of the	secure encrypted destination
	   after encryption. This is required if the log entries to be
	   encrypted will be appended to an existing secure encrypted
	   destination.

OPTIONS
       --key-file or -k
	   The current host key	from the system	where the encryption will be
	   performed.

       --mac-file or -m
	   The current MAC file	from the system	where the encryption will be
	   performed.

       --help or -h
	   Display a help message.
