If you read the remainder of that thread you pointed to, you'll find
The main thing being to "ssl enable" the source connections by using
Stunnel on the originating machine. This random picture from "the
interwebz" explains it pretty well:
In place of "Hamster" you'd have your source client.
I expect the TLS support situation to improve with source clients, as we
are soon going to release a TLS enabled version of libshout. The library
many clients use to talk to Icecast servers.
In case one has only local connections from source clients, then just
binding a plain http port to ::1 or 127.0.0.1 is safe too.
