Securely Logging & Tracing HTTP Requests in Go

I was recently debugging a nasty issue in one of our backend services and needed to view the exact HTTP request & response being sent to an authentication server. Fortunately, Go’s standard library provides http.RoundTripper, httputil.DumpRequestOut & httputil.DumpResponse, which are great for dumping the exact out-bound request & the response. But since an authentication request contains credentials and a response contains a security token, it would have been insecure to record credentials & tokens in our logging systems. How could I securely exfiltrate the information I needed, while maintaining security and not requiring a whole lot of changes to my codebase or deployment environment?

The Convergence of Data Analytics and Security

A renewed sense of urgency to secure information, networks and electronic devices in order to thwart advanced hacking techniques loomed over the 2013 RSA conference floor in San Francisco. The harsh realization that traditional security measures simply don’t cut it anymore was confirmed by various keynotes and casual hallway conversations between peers.
