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.
Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) Support
Many enterprises have Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) as their standard. It would be ideal to add support for OEL OS, so customers can deploy the products (SSP CM/SSP Engine/SSP PS) without any if and buts we have today in our support statement. htt...
Add TLS 1.3 Support to Sterling Secure Proxy
Add built-in report for bruteforce attempts.
The Sterling Proxy is our gateway between
the internet and SFG. As such, we are
exposed to attempts to guess user IDs
using brutefore methods.
The raw internal logs show each event and
contain the IP address, Time, username and
number of faile...
SSP to support 9000+ IPs/range nodes in Inbound Netmaps for all protocols
Currently, we have 9000+ IPs/CIDR ranges to allow the traffic from. We have added 9000+ entries in Netmap nodes but when we try to edit/save/add more nodes manually the SSP CM GUI is hanging/breaks/not responding properly/going to inoperable state...
Add support for JN Union HSM devices
This will allow secure use of the platform in China.
Block users from attempting authentication at the Secure Proxy level
We have a Secure Proxy engine that is exposed to the internet. As such we are subjected to a large number of "probing" login attempts from usernames such as "root", "admin", etc.All of our login attempts are passed to a Sterling External Authenti...
Add SSL Support between Sterling Secure Proxy Configuration Manager / Engine and WebSphere MQ
Security mandates that all the connections need to be secured. WebSphere MQ supports SSL but not SSP CM / SSP Engine, adding this functionality allows meeting the newer security requirements.
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 pressu...
Ability to reject user access at proxy before authentication check
We would like the ability to create a proxy filter (blacklist) to block unknown user names that result in failed authentication attempts. Many of these attempts come from both domestic and foreign nations, so IP whitelisting is not useful to rest...

Hi Team,One of my client has a requirement to monitor and generate a report which gives the details of users who initiated a connection to SSP.It should capture both successful and unsuccessful attempts along with the username. Currently, the onl...
