The documentation for "stream" is at
I would expect that the way to do it would be to put both "udp" and
"ssl" in the "listen" directive.
When I do that using one version of nginx, "nginx -t" reports:
[emerg] "listen" directive "ssl" parameter is incompatible with "udp"
That does match what is described at
Note that searching the list archives does point to
http://nginx.org/patches/dtls/ and an indication that that experiment
was paused owing to a lack of a use case.
I suspect that if you want to report on how that patch works for you --
being aware that it was written for an older version of nginx, so possibly
will not apply as-is to the current version -- and/or describe your
specific use case, then there may be someone willing to update the patch.
Good luck with it,
