Secure the Collector 🔗

The OpenTelemetry Collector defaults to operating in a secure manner, but is configuration driven. See Security for important security aspects and considerations for the OpenTelemetry Collector. This document is intended for both end users and component developers, and assumes at least a basic understanding of OpenTelemetry Collector architecture and functionality.

See Check exposed ports for information on exposed ports. Check to make sure your environment doesn’t have port conflicts and that firewalls are configured properly.
