I plan to install a couple of Pi boxes with the software soon. I am willing to try to archive the data in some storage (yet to be defined). I have seen some attempts that do modify (fa)dump1090 to access MySQL for example. My preference would be to be non intrusive and avoid any modification of the software. My thought was therefore to probably connect the 2 boxes using nc as explained on the github homepage and to connect my external component to store the data through port 30002. I have therefore a couple of questions:
1- Is it a good idea to go with the RAW data ? If yes how to decode it back to the physical data ?
2- Anyone aware of something already existing ?
3- Is there any easy way to encrypt the data (between the box) other than tunnelling using ssh ?
Thanks for your help
