  1. Implement OSSEC

    Implement as an add-on, or possibly through an Extension, the ability to install and configure OSSEC. An Extension GUI which provides simple, limited functionality to configure the most frequently used features of OSSEC would be an awesome addition to Plesk.

      • Integrate awesome Security from "Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux Free Edition"

        There should be a Scanner for Malware by default.

          • Support of SELinux

            Attacks to web servers are in increasing. All modern Linux distribution come with SELinux. SELinux is a perfect way to avoid an attacker to get privileged access to the OS. Currently, Plesk is not supporting SELinux.
            Support should be added. A policy should be provided to configure SELinux to support all PLESK relevant actions on the server.

                • opcache memory per vhost instead of shared

                  Currently Opcache is written in a shared memory it should be stored in the user's home folder. One client can see the all the scripts stored from all the sites hosted in the server.

                  • Prevent decryption of passwords for customers/mail users/...

                    At the moment, user/customer/... passwords are stored in the database in a way that they can still be decryted using the server's private key (see for instance http://serverfault.com/questions/425116/possible-to-get-cleartext-password). This is for instance used by the program mail_auth_view. Thus, once somebody knows the key and has access to the database, (s)he can decrypt all passwords.

                    I would like to prevent the ability of decrypting passwords at all. Since many people use the same passwords across different accounts, I'd like to prevent the risk that user passwords unintentionally could get revealed if somebody gets access to the server.

                      • Add ipset in Firewall to increase performance

                        Please extend the Firewall / Concept to make the use of ipset, because it is generally the fastest solution i found so far. Chains like "f2b-recidive" can also be implemented as ipset list. This will speed up the whole process while adding or removing ips. I dont know if there is a cidr support in ipset...

                        For example, remove the following chain:

                        f2b-plesk-postfix tcp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 multiport dports 25,465,587

                        And extend the firewall with a native DROP on the ports as described below:

                        DROP tcp -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 multiport dports 25,465,587 match-set f2b-plesk-postfix src

                        And then (or before?) just…

                            Often large Companies with lot's of Workstation are getting blocked because 1 Client in their Office is trying to log in with wrong Password (imap/pop/smtp) - then the whole Office of them is getting blocked and the search which PC/which User is causing the block.starts ...
                            It would help big times if one got a reference which Login Name / Username caused the block as additional Info next to the IP ...
                            Won't help on Brute Force Attacks where the Username changes ... but on this Scenario it would be a big Timesaver ...

                              • Don't show version on the login mask.

                                I recommend to don't show any information about the version of Plesk or other software before the user logged in.

                                  You wouldn’t need to worry too much on version exposure:
                                  1) should there be any vulnerability discovered, we will fix it for each and every supported version. Just stay up2date
                                  2) hiding version gives only false sense of security – attacker can still apply all known vulnerabilities disregarding your actual version. There were just few vulnerabilities about Plesk and it is easy to run them all (though it won’t give an impact as all of them are addressed already). It is even easier than capturing a version from a file.

                                  If you remain heavily concerned, we can recommend applying Two-Factor authentication via Clef or Google Auth extensions at http://ext.plesk.com or maybe restricting Plesk control panel access to certain IPs only and only enter it via VPN. The last option is the least convenient and the most secure.

                                • Implementing Dropbox's password strength library

                                  Please consider implementing Dropbox's password strength library in future versions of plesk. https://github.com/dropbox/zxcvbn

                                  Right now (Plesk Onyx Version 17.8.11) very secure passwords such as applaud-bisque-batch-forefoot won't even pass the "medium" filter, and very bad passwords such as Pa$$word123 are marked "Strong".

                                  Brute force cracking continues to get more sophisticated and the current strength ratings are misleading.

                                      • Implement client SSL certificates for authentication into mail

                                        There is an option in Outlook, mail.app and other clients "authenticate using certificate". HOwever Plesk does not allow to use this client based method of authentication.
