  1. Use Lets Encrypt to secure FTPs connections

    Hi,

    I usually use the ftp.site.com subdomain for the client FTP connections.
    And to secure those connections I enabled FTPs. But at this point the users receive a certificate host name mismatch because the FTPs connection is being setup using the VPS Lets Encrypt cert.

    It would be nice to use the Lets Encrypt certificate service also to secure the FTPs connections.

    Thanks!

  5. 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.

  7. Temporary FTP accounts (with expire date)

    It would be great to have ftp account with an expire date.
    A sort of temporary ftp accounts.

    This becomes really usefull when you need to share your ftp details temporary with a webdeveloper, or somebody else to maintain of check an website.

    I always make a new FTP account for this sort of events, but then forget to delete them. It would be real nice if you could set a expire date that the account automaticly blocks itself after that date is past.

  9. Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

    Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

    In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

    Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

  10. Fail2ban setting findtime per Jail

    In Fail2ban (great idea to include it in plesk!) settings you can set "Time interval for detection of subsequent attacks" (findtime) in general. But it would be interesting this setting per Jail.
    Why?
    you could have 2 jail with same filter but different findtime. Example:
    Jail 1) 5 failures in 600 seconds: 1800 seconds ban
    Jail 2) 30 failures in 86400 seconds: 604800 seconds ban

    There are bots that detect if you have some protection fail2ban or similar and it will adapt, login attempt every 300 seconds for example. Jail 1 no detect this attack, but Jail 2 yes.

  13. Support HPKP

    I'd like to see HPKP integrated into the SSL certificate management of Plesk. This would allow, in combination with standard Nginx/Apache config, for a strongly recommended and worthwhile security element to be added to hosted sites.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  19. 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.
