  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. Enable Mail DKIM signing by default

    I suggest to add an option to Plesk Service Plans to enable DKIM signing when creating a new hosting package.

    Right now we have to manually enable DKIM signing for every new hosting account after creation.

    This should be inside a Service Plan under tab: Mail

  9. 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.

  10. Enable IIS option "loadUserProfile:true" for dedicated application pools

    In Windows Server IIS, it is recommended to set loadUserProfile:true for dedicated application pools. Doing so guarantees better application isolation and security for web applications created with ASP.NET, .NET Core or PHP.

    You can find some basic information about this setting in this Stack Overflow answer: https://stackoverflow.com/a/17149834/1297898.
    Official Microsoft documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/manage/configuring-security/application-pool-identities, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/manage/configuring-security/ensure-security-isolation-for-web-sites

    I will be pleased to provide any additional information you may require.

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. Add Nginx Jails to Fail2Ban

    Plesk has - praise be - increasingly better supported Nginx, now with the option to use only Nginx, which is great.

    That being so, now we need the next logical step: The Fail2Ban Jails for Apache are available, but will have no effect, as Apache is not used at all any more. So we need some Jails for Nginx.

    This is not exactly rocket science, there are plenty of examples to be found on the web, the Fail2Ban distribution has some, and here's an article on digitalocean:
    https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-protect-an-nginx-server-with-fail2ban-on-ubuntu-14-04

    Search for: fail2ban nginx 404
    E.g. https://nichteinschalten.de/apache-nginx-404-fail2ban-regex/
    Note The 404 code is…

  18. block bad bots by default

    There are many bots that can actually DoS a server using Plesk. Since there's no way to limit their connections they can overload a server really easily. Currently the only way to block them is by reading the logs and implementing blocks in nginx or .htaccess rules.

    It would be great if there could be some security by default. The community has created very comprehensive lists that could be used and auto updated / maintained by cron jobs.

    Here's an example for Apache

    https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/apache-ultimate-bad-bot-blocker/tree/master/Apache_2.4

    And here's for Nginx

    https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/nginx-ultimate-bad-bot-blocker

    It could help mitigate attacks and vulnerability scans as well a…
