# Logging

UniConfig distribution uses Logback as the implementation of the logging framework. Logback is the successor to to the log4j framework with many improvements such as more options for configuration, better performance, and context-based separation of logs. Context-based separation of logs is used widely in UniConfig to achieve per-device logging based on the set marker in the logs.



TLS is a widely adopted security protocol designed to facilitate privacy and data security for communications over the Internet. In the default version of UniConfig TLS authentication is disabled.


# TLS for Postgres database

By default, UniConfig communicates with the database without TLS, therefore all traffic is not encrypted. When the database is deployed separately from UniConfig, it is advised to enable the TLS encryption.
