    We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
    2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

    As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

    As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

    It's hard to believe the admin username cannot be changed. Not using admin as a username is system admin 101 and is recommended by Datadog, Cloudflare, Wordfence, GCP, AWS, and multiple other security sources. Although my firewall and authenticator are doing their job, "admin" is the top choice that blackhats use for brute force attempts on my server.

    It is extremely important to add the functionality of providing SSH access to third-party users for a particular folder, like /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/ or /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/dir1
    Reason #1: FTP is insecure
    Reason #2: FTP nor FTPs is supported by the Cloudflare proxy
    Reason #3: For security reasons, third-party developers do not need root access (Plesk's current configuration). Highly productive teams need to delegate tasks to DevOps for specific directories and admins are subjected to data leakage when bypassing Cloudflare to connect via FTP in these highly productive environments.
    Reason: #4: Connecting a web app located in a specific directory to a third-party API using SSH via Plesk is unavailable.

    Ideal Solutions:
    Solution #1: Cloudflare enables a solution to proxy FTPs. or
    Solution #2: Plesk implements a solution for directory-specific SSH like FTPs.

    Non-ideal solutions:
    Non-ideal Solution #1: Advise customers to stop using Cloudflare or configure their DNS to bypass it for FTP. (This exposes their origin IP)
    Non-ideal Solution #2: Create multiple subscriptions for customers.
    Non-ideal Solution #3: Customers consider migrating their site to the sole use of GCP or AWS by dividing the site into individual projects. Configuring SSH connectivity for individual projects via Cloud platforms is very simple and easy and customers can continue using Cloudflare. This is a growing trend. Hopefully, Plesk can provide a solution to combat this loss of customers.

    Despite my extensive research, I may be overlooking a current solution. If so, please provide the resource.
