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.

Support MQ HA for configuring JMS Topic

The MQ infrastructure at our organisation is set up in a HA topology where we have multiple queue managers. The queue manager name is not provided to applications wanting to connect to the queues with the expectation that they use the default queu...

Utility option to a view only mode for SSP configuration

Currently the only way to view a configuration (Adapter, netmap,policy, etc ) is to open it for editing. This causes unnecessary riskto accidentally make changes of production configurations.

Add multiple ICAP servers

Would like to have the option to add an alternate ICAP server for redundancy

GCM mode for SFTP

We are seeing increased reluctance from partner organisations to trust CBC mode, due to OpenSSH's withdrawal of support for this mode by default. This leaves Secure Proxy with only CTR mode encryption as a widely accepted option. To ensure that we...

Add more security to the keys, notification of expiration and renew them after certain period.
