Shape the future of IBM!
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Post your ideas
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notifications on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Suppress password policy error messages from SEAS logs if using Ping for Active Directory.
ERROR LdapPasswordPolicyRetriever - ************** Uknown or unsupported LDAP server detected
We use Ping for our Active Directory solution and it was determined that Ping does not return the password policy to SEAS as expected. Therefore, this...
Select multiple trust cert with search functionality
In SSP Dashboard, Netmap > Inbound Node[HTTP based protocol] > Security>CA Certificates/Trusted Root While selecting multiple certificates it becomes very difficult to select multiple cert and find to unselect certificate. It would be con...
reading Source IP address from HTTP headers through for example X-Forwarded-For
Currently there is a dynamic routing feature to read incoming source IP address and base the routing based on this value. However many organizations dont support having source IP address hitting the SSP engine servers. Usually the incoming IP addr...
Some sites still require Implicit SSL due to business pressure
Implicit SSL is generally not a best practice when setting up FTPS. The preferred alternative is Explicit SSL, which is the current standard for FTPS connections for Secure Proxy. However, some of our customers experience intense business pressure...
Concept of Certificate Grouping and Referring Group Directly Under Netmaps
In Today's world, when Client Authentication is Enabled in SSP, firstly we need to get the root and intermediate certs and check-in to the SSP and then choose the new certificates in the respective netmaps. The number of netmaps we need to make th...
SSP - Disable TLS1.0
SSLv3 is disabled by default in SSP in the java.security file with the following line of code. We have attempted to add TLS1 to disable TLS1.0 only and we were not successful. Adding TSL1 to the list of algorithms disabled all versions of TLS not ...
License FASP at SSP rather than the endpoints. Add FASP support to SSP for additional protocols
FASP licensing could be applied to SSP rather than the underlying endpoints thereby allowing bridging to be performed where a multitude of underlying endpoints route through that SSP instance. Currently each endpoint has to be licensed individuall...
Sterling Secure Proxy does not currently support the forward proxy
Ability to see perimeter server status on SSP (i.e. monitioring - running/stopped)
Currently we're unable to see which perimeter servers are active on the Sterling Secure Proxy engines, this in turn can cause issues if duplicates are present. This would mimic the monitoring ability currently in place for adapters.
Control logging of SSP CM monitoring messages
Messages are written to the auditlog.xml file (ACPT037I, ACPT040I and ACPT038I), as well as the sspengine.log file for the same activity. It is possible to reduce the frequency of these messages, but only to once every 10 minutes. It would be grea...
