The livestatus proxy can be configured to cascade livestatus connections. The feature was introduced with 1.5.0 by werk #5970 which describes how this can be used.
In previous versions the livestatus proxy was always offering a plain text livestatus connection. Even if the site configuration offered the option "Encrypt communication". Changing the option simply did not have any effect. Trying to connect to this socket using a livestatus client with encryption enabled simply failed all the time.
With this change the livestatus proxy is now respecting the "Encrypt communication" and offering a TLS encrypted server socket using the certificate of the site where the livestatus proxy is running on.To the list of all Werks
