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.
to store SSH keys on HSM - SSP
Barclays GIS team have requirement to store the SSH keys on HSM. We raised case "TS004170075" with IBM and got to know that currently SSP dont support this and requested to raise RFE for it. Currently we store the x509 certs into HSM and want sam...
More authentication mechanisms can be used for Sterling Secure Proxy to be monitored by SCC
In the Sterling Secure Proxy Configuration related documents, only the user/Password authentication mechanism to be used for the SSP to be monitored by the SCC. However this method might not be a good option, since the password can't be hold for a...
IP + User_Id whitelisting
SSP supports IP or User_Id whitelisting only but not a combo ( IP + User_id). We need to ability to whitelist IPs for a given User_id. This way, if a rouge employee left the firm but carries the user_id credential, he can't login from other loca...
OCSP implementation for CD/SEAS
CD/SEAS do not provide any means to check the status of the certifcate in real time. They current rely on cache update on regular basis. Addition of OSCP in SEAS will provide a realtime check of revocation
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...
Secure Connection between Secure Proxy Engine (in DMZ) and SSP Perimeter Server (in Secure Network)
There is a requirement from customer to have Secure Connection between Secure Proxy Engine (in DMZ) and SSP Perimeter Server (in Secure Network).
Password Security Controls
Password security controls for SSP administrator interfaces using local authentication are not allow enough password security controls:
Passwords expiration can’t be enforced.
Password complexity settings are minimal and don’t comply with the ...
Inactivity Session Timeout Controls - Administrator Accounts
The administrative consoles for the Sterling Secure Proxy do not contain inactivity session timeout settings. This is not in compliance with our security procedures that require implementation of automatic system timeouts that end user sessions a...
Inactive User Accounts Controls - Administrator Accounts
Application parameter settings that do not automatically disable and/or remove user accounts after a specified period of inactivity may result in unauthorized access, modification, destruction, and/or disclosure of confidential information.
enhancement request to implement "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" algorithms
We have customers who use the NIST-ciphers for key exchange. The IBM support-Team told us, that Sterling Secure Proxy does not currently support the NIST key Exchange algorithms. So, we are asking for it to be implemented as soon as possible.
