Not by auditd and audisp-remote. There may be ways of creating an encrypted 
tunnel between the systems if need be. 

Also note that the remote logging capability is listed as "In Tech Preview" 
status if RHEL is involved. There are a few odds and ends that need some 
development work, such as a "store and forward" mode so that the audit system 
is lossless. Right now, the audit events in transit to a remote system only 
exist in memory and if the system oopses, all events in memory are lost.
