collectd: Consider enabling signing/encryption support
collectd's network plugin has the option to sign or encrypt the contents for data transfer to other collectd instances.
OpenWrt added this feature here.
It is probably only a matter of adding
Yes, this will introduce a new dependency on libgcrypt. On a small embedded platform this might be of concern. But for omnia and mox, it shouldn't be a big problem. And only people installing the network plugin will actually get that extra depeendencies. Which sounds acceptable to me.
