  2. Add configuration option for protection against host header injection

    It will be good to add the feature to configuration the Plesk host header injection protection.
    Curretly that is not possible to make it by the Plesk interface.

  4. Deprecate clear domain names as home directory

    Since plesk is storing each vhost as clear domain name, every user wit shell access is able to see which domains/customers are on this host, eg. with > getenv passwd

    We know we can chroot the user but chroot is NOT a security feature and makes trouble with applications the user might expect (or the environment these applications expect) - and there is still a way to break out from the environment or new ways get discovered. Much afford for nothing in the end.

    We do not want to put customers in containers, jails whatsoever to restrict the user access…

  5. Firewall, Remote Adress(es): input a lot of remote adresses at once.

    In the Firewall settings, to input remote adress(es) to block or allow, it would be usefull, to input a lot of remote adresses, just to block or allow a whole company at once (after getting their adresses from ipinfo.io, for example).

    Actually I get spam, check remote IP (at dnslytics.com for example) and block that IP, if wanted.
    After getting a lot of these mails from IP adresses of the same company, I get the IP adresses from that company and block all the known IP ranges...one by one.
    That could be 100s or more and take too much time.…

  6. Ability to monitor clients uploads via FTP or File Manager

    It would be nice to have the ability to detect customer uploads via FTP or File Manager. So it will be possible to check files afterwards.

  7. Iptables: Allow Rules via the shell

    Our Intrusion prevention system CrowdSec adds one rule having a blacklist to Ipables.

    If you manipulate the rules in the UI, Plesk rewrites all rules. Therefore manually added rules are no more available.

    This could be fixed very simple by having an additional script, which will be called after saving the rules by the UI.

  14. Make Plesk Firewall add/change rules incrementally without restarting the whole service

    Make Plesk Firewall add/change rules incrementally without restarting the whole service.

    Now Plesk firewall reloads all rules in iptables when rules are changed in firewall (all rules are added anew). If there is a long list of blacklisted IPs or server is under a brute-force attack and there are a lot of IPs blocked by the Fail2Ban, adding/changing any rule via Plesk Firewall will cause server restart that is taking a lot of time due to a large number of blocked IPs.

  15. Restrict webmail based on IP address

    It would be great to have a way to limit webmail access for a given domain by IP address, so that the client has to be in their office network, or VPNed in to their office in order to access webmail.domain.tld

  18. Disk encryption

    Disk level encryption.
    Similar to what AWS offers with RDS.
    Encryption at rest for the entire server rather than doing it column by column manually.

  20. support algorithm 16 (ed448) in DNSSEC

    Recognising the increasing challenges in these times, would welcome the implementation of the Edwards-curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA) type ed448 for security and to keep ahead of the curve (sic.) on the cryptographic front...

    interesting tool here too for those interested in checking out where they're up to with browser support (and to know the differences between the different algorithms): https://ed448.no/
