puppetlabs/stunnel — version 0.3.0 May 5th 2017


Provides a defined resource type for managing stunnel on Debian and Red Hat systems.


   stunnel::tun { 'rsyncd':
     certificate => "/etc/puppet/ssl/certs/${::clientcert}.pem",
     private_key => "/etc/puppet/ssl/private_keys/${::clientcert}.pem",
     ca_file     => '/etc/puppet/ssl/certs/ca.pem',
     crl_file    => '/etc/puppet/ssl/crl.pem',
     chroot      => '/var/lib/stunnel4/rsyncd',
     user        => 'pe-puppet',
     group       => 'pe-puppet',
     client      => false,
     accept      => '1873',
     connect     => '873',


  • There is no sysvinit script installed as part of the stunnel package on Red Hat systems.
  • Use of SSLv2 is highly discouraged because it's known to be vulnerable.
  • The chroot defined in stunnel::tun needs to be manually created.
