    • Make default Plesk Firewall rules more strict

      Right now "System policy for outgoing traffic" rule is set to allow all outgoing traffic as default which is not secure enough.

      Please consider to make default firewall rules for outgoing traffic more secure and allow only Plesk services to send outgoing packets

            • Add support for pam_shield

              I know we have support for fail2ban. But fail2ban works reading the logs. A better tool for protecting the ssh console and others it's to use pam_shield module, with works directly when the "hacker" it's directly trying to guess the password of a system user.

              It's configuration it's very easy, only /etc/security/shield.conf file.

              It uses less resources to protect the services than fail2ban.

              Regards,

                • Set right ciphers by default on Windows

                  There is a documentation how to do it manually: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/plesk-administration/securing-plesk/pci-dss-compliance/tune-plesk-to-meet-pci-dss-on-windows.78901/

                  but there is no tool to do it automatically (and by default during the installation).

                    AFAIU, the request is about right ciphers for SSL configuration. We have a documentation how to do it manually: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/plesk-administration/securing-plesk/pci-dss-compliance/tune-plesk-to-meet-pci-dss-on-windows.78901/ but have no tool to do it automatically, so, this is a valid request, we’ll look into it.

                    There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!

                  • nftables support (firewall)

                    Since 2014, with Linux kernel 3.13 and later, a new system for providing filtering and classification of network packets, datagrams and frames was introduced: nftables

                    It is stateful and more modular than iptables and does support IPv6.

                    As there are already packages for Archlinux or RHEL and so for CentOS and you can install on your own (of course), it would be great if in an upcoming (major) release iptables is replaced by nftables. Or a switch is implemented to use either the one or the other.

                    More information on:
                    https://wiki.nftables.org
                    http://netfilter.org/projects/nftables/
                    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/nftables

                    • I would like to ban an IP address from the log view of a domain.

                      It would be nice if while examining the web logs from the user or admin control panel, that you could block an IP. Possibly write an entry to the htaccess file.

                      • Make Plesk more robust when concurrent operations were made

                        In many cases, iftwo admins are doing operations on the Plesk GUI at the same time, issues arises.

                        For example, if you switch the IP for outgoing mail while you're restoring a domain backup, such domain will change their IP automatically to a wrong one, and the whole domain stops working.

                        For your reference, see my ticket #2043269

                                      Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

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

                                      For now, there are no plans to invest resources in Plesk Multi Server development.

                                      By default Apache has some protection built-in to restrict accessing dot files, but Nginx does not.
