  3. Enhanced VPN support

    Since VPN connection are more and more common, and mobile devices used to connect to monitor servers, there is a need for an enhancement on the old VPN Add-on on plesk (linux).
    Currently the IOS and Android OpenVPN client does not support secret — Static key encryption mode (non-TLS) is not supported.
    from https://docs.openvpn.net/docs/openvpn-connect/openvpn-connect-ios-faq.html
    Which is the only way to use the Plesk VPN connection because it does not support certificates.
    There is a lot of literature on troubles with VPN on mobile, but basically, all of them are due to old style, unsecured way to connect to VPN.

    Can…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  8. 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!

    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.

  12. Add ip manually to fail2ban

    It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.

  14. Allow Let's Encrypt to validate over 80 or 443 (not just 80)

    We're very excited to see Let's Encrypt in Plesk 17, it makes secure sites much, much easier. However, port 80 is not open on a number of our servers for security reasons and it would appear the Plesk coding for the API to Let's Encrypt forces the use of port 80. Let's Encrypt supports validation of domains over 80 OR 443, but Plesk is requiring 80. The only workaround is to open 80 to the world so it can be validated since Let's Encrypt does supply a list of public IP's their traffic could source from.

  15. ProFTPd GeoIP blocking

    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.

  16. Make PLESK compatible with "Microsoft Security Essential" for Windows servers

  18. 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.
