  1. Compile nginx with mod_security

    Basically, the title says it all.
    It can be done manually but then we wont be able to configure mod_security (rules, detection level, fail2ban) in Plesk.

    Please include mod_security in nginx.

    • Implement a support module for Duo Security 2FA

      Plesk has support for Google Authenticator and Clef, could an Extension/Module be written to support the authentication through Duo Security?

      • steering allowed SSLCiphers (negative >noCBC; positive >only GCM) for all System-layers (mail, Plesk-Login, Apache, Nginx) via Plesk

        Optimizing the Quality of SSL-/TLS-Encryption at Plesk-driven Servers is very complicated...

        ... while the importance of a high-level encryption - not only since Edward Snowden - is of considerable importance.

        please investigate:

        http://serverfault.com/questions/550247/sslciphersuite-disable-weak-encryption-cbc-cipher-and-md5-based-algorithm

        and

        http://www.kuketz-blog.de/nsa-abhoersichere-ssl-verschluesselung-fuer-apache-und-nginx/ (best article / only available in german)

        Please implement the possibility for defining/steering not/allowed Ciphers and not/allowed SSL-protocols directly via PleskPanel.

        This function should include ALL System-layers like: mail, webmail, Plesk-Login, SSH, PHP- or JAVA-Apps/Tomcat, Apache, Nginx, ...

        THANK YOU VERY MUCH

              • Port Scan protection, PortSentry / PSAD

                Plesk has fail2ban but seems to have no port scan protection, Something like PSAD or Portsentry would be good to be included to allow blocking and reporting on portscans making plesk more secure for everyone.

                    • Add option for minimum 12 characters in passwords

                      Add option for minimum 8 characters in Plesk > Home > Tools & Settings > Security Policy > Password.

                      You can label it as "Stronger".
                      Going from 8 to 16 characters leaves a big step.
                      We train our customers to user minimum 12 characters in their passwords (including lower/upper case, numbers and symbols).

                          • Secure default HTTPS settings

                            Set the default settings so that websites (e.g. Wordpress) created in Plesk have a good score in online scanners (are secure).

                            One very good scanner is https://observatory.mozilla.org/

                            This includes some headers to be sent, and secure TLS settings.
                            Mozilla also offers a guide concerning web server settings: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Server_Side_TLS

                            The remaining things should be set in Wordpress directly directly by Plesk.

                              Secure MySQL connections via SSL/TLS: it is only a number of small changes in the code and a huge step in decreasing the attack surface.

                                  Thank you for your input! We will consider functionality to implement ability to set TLS as required for email connections in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

                                  Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

                                  Please note that STARTSSL is a service of StartCom and there are issues with them to stay in CA role http://www.pcworld.com/article/3129725/certificate-policy-violations-force-reform-at-startcom-and-wosign.html so STARTSSL support will not be implemented in Plesk.

                                  Compile proftpd with "GeoIP"
                                  http://www.proftpd.org/docs/contrib/mod_geoip.html

                                  This would allow to block or whitelist countries - even on a per user basis.
                                  We did research on this and most of the foreign FTP attempts are malicious.

                                      • SAML integration

                                        For setups with a large amount of plesk servers it would be very nice to be able to be able use a SAML integration to handle the user authentication.

                                        • More customizable password strength

                                          Please consider implementing more options for customization of password strength - for example disalbing it, setting allowed password to have lower than 5 symbols or the opposite - increase number of symbols required for a password.
