  1. 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!

  3. Fail2ban with default jail "plesk-tor" or as checkbox in plesk firewall

    From time to time TOR users attack my server. I would like to have a fail2ban jail for TOR that can be turned on and off. All IPs are listed here: https://check.torproject.org/torbulkexitlist

    Or as a firewal rule.

    I realize that the attacker can also use other services.

  4. Inform users automatically of weak password usage (emailaccounts, FTP, installed WP installations, etc.)

    I think it would be an excellent idea if there was a feature within Plesk which actually checks (once a week or so) for weak passwords and informs users about weak passwords in general.

    We still have a lot of customers who use (extremely) weak passwords. To check these manually (even with a simple written script) is to time consuming.

    This should be done automatically nowadays. Therefor such a feature is really needed in Plesk.

    It should check for weak passwords for:

    • weak passwords used in emailaccounts
    • weak passwords used for user created databases
    • weak passwords for hostingaccounts
    • weak passwords…

  5. Add the notification in Plesk that Fail2ban is enabled or disabled

    Add the notification in Plesk that Fail2ban is enabled or disabled so that Plesk Admin can see if tFail2ban service is working or not in Tools&Settings > Fail2Ban, e.g. "Fail2ban is active".

  6. OCSP stapling for webmail in Plesk

    Add a feature to enable OSCP stapling for webmail of domains that will increase webmail security.

    This feature is already available for domains in the SSL It! extension.

  7. Allow to register all let's encrypt certificates to the Plesk Administrator email

    Customer has around 2000 domains and hitting the weekly limit for the new certificates. All domains have different ACME IDs

    Customer reached Let's Encrypt support and they agreed to increase limits but require to provide "his own dedicated ACME ID". This feature is required to get such dedicated id.

    This is useful when a lot of domains were migrated to another server and it is required to secure them quickly without reaching limits.

  8. Add possibility in ModSecurity to configure real-time file scan when files are uploaded

    It would be great to add possibility in ModSecurity to configure real-time file scan when files are uploaded: https://github.com/SpiderLabs/ModSecurity/wiki/Reference-Manual-(v2.x)#files_tmpnames

    Such feature will allow the Plesk administrator to configure some Perl scripts to analize all the files uploaded by the users.

  9. Plesk for Windows - RdpGuard

    Please include the security system RdpGuard (https://rdpguard.com/) in Plesk for Windows. And please add configuration from Plesk.
    This is a very good alternative to IP2ban (which is only for Linux).

    Thanks

  11. Let pci_compliance_resolver --enable postfix also set FORWARD SECURITY and go dor TLSv1.3

    Even though server supports TLS 1.2, the cipher suite configuration is suboptimal. It is recommend to configure the server so that the cipher suites providing forward secrecy (ECDHE or DHE in the name, in this order of preference) and authenticated encryption (GCM or CHACHA20 in the name) are at the top. The server must also be configured to select the best-available suite!

    also there is TLSv3 https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8446
    (and draft is used already a long time by many;)

    http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html

    And while Playing on Mailserver think about MTA Strict Transport Security (Draft standard) and Email DANE / TLSA.

  12. Anonymize IP in logs instead of disabling them completely

    It would be great to have an option to anonymize IP addresses, not to disable it completely to get rid of issues with statistics displaying. For example as it is for Plesk on Linux.

    Currently, Plesk for Windows has an option to completely disable IP addresses logging In Tools & Settings > Server Settings which affects web statistics.

  13. Remove the certificate for securing mail from Plesk

    There is no option to remove Certificate for securing mail via Plesk UI, the only option is to switch it to another.

  18. 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

  19. Show if server needs reboot

    It should be nice to have a notification if server needs reboot inside plesk.

    Like after big updates ( kernel , os components ... )

    Like message when you connect to SU in SSH.
