slogencrypt — Encrypt existing plain text log files using the AxoSyslog secure logging environment.
slogencrypt [options] [arguments]
slogencrypt utility 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.

<new key file>
The file that will contain the new current encryption key after successful encryption.
<new MAC file>
