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

Native support for DLP to manage sensible data
Customer would like to have in SSP a feature to connect with their DLP solution based on ICAP protocol to avoid that sensible data be sent outside of their organization without permission.
Would it be possible to create a way to monitor secure proxy adapters from the command line? It is possible to monitor sfg that way and as such building automation around this capability is nice.
SEAS UI Password Recovery
There is no way to recover the admin password for the SEAS UI in SEAS 22.214.171.124 iFix 6 build 208. Users cannot manage certificate renewal updates if they cannot login to the UI.
Allow customization of LDAP ping "dummy" user
It is possible to configure a periodic "heartbeat" that checks the connection to External Auth, and it is also possible to have it attempt an LDAP bind (via the ea.ping.profile setting). However, when it does this LDAP bind, it uses a fake user ("...
Need to support configuration for all protocols regarding forward proxies
A customer with whom I am working requires forward proxies for all protocols they use, in this case FTPS, SFTP and HTTPS. Their expectation is that Secure Proxy support these protocols both as reverse and forward proxies.
Maintain FIPS support for SSP HSM
JCE FIPS implementation has changed in the JRE shipped with SSP 6.0.2 to add support for TLSv1.3. Require verification that FIPS mode will continue to be supported after migration from 126.96.36.199
Support for EBICS protocol/authentication in the DMZ
To enable EBICS protocol to be authenticated in the DMZ , SSP with SEAS using either LDAP or Sterling B2B Integrator (similar model to SSO token authentication to avoid duplicating authentication).
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...
