  1. Changing WAF configuration without forcing a service restart

    Hi,
    Currently when we make a change to any web server or any one waf firewall rule, the impact is that the whole service reboots and causes a drop in connection for all the WAF services running.
    This should not be the case. only the rule that is being edited should be affected and not all the services.
    This is also how its done in MS TMD

  2. Dynamic (Automatic) Certificates on Web Server Protection

    Currently under WebServer Protection, you are required to setup an SSL Certificate for each Web Server that you are trying to protect. In a web hosting environment this is not plausible or even practical.

    Use Case Scenario:


    • CPanel Web Hosting server could potentially be hosting 100's or 1000's of Web Sites.

    • It is best practice to SSLize Websites. Using standard http is no longer desirable, and it's easier than ever now to automate SSL certificates on websites hosted with CPanel (See next point)

    • CPanel provides automatic SSL certificate deployment from Comodo Secure to any website you want using their AutoSSL…

  4. WAF Signature ID does not show in GUI Log viewer; only availible via console logs

    Team, This request is to include the actual signature ID being invoked in the GUI WAF logs. Including this will assist us when figured out which rule to bypass, if needed.

  6. Add X-Forwarded-For / CF-Connecting-IP support

    Many of the sites nowadays are behind CloudFlare. It would be great to have an option to inspect and see the real IP address in the WAF logs / Reports.

    It will be like 1 raw entry in the Apache configs!

  8. RSA SecurID authentication support for published Web Servers

    Alot of customers use RSA SecuID tokens to authenticate published web apps. This feature is important wrt Web Server Protection as other products like Barracuda WAF takes the advantage.

  9. Session Handling for Web Server Traffic

    XG should provide the functionality to monitor sessions created by a certain Web server and should also be able to drop traffic if number of sessions increase a threshold set by user

  10. WAF OTP

    Migrating from TMG 2010 server to XG 330. Currently, have a few websites, like OWA, remote desktop, etc...that we require 2 factor authentication. Would be great if WAF rules supported OTP authentication using the built in OTP product. Was told by support this is not possible. Thanks.

  11. "rewrite html"

    As suggested by the support I add the suggestion associated with ticket #7420116 here as well.

    Please consider supplementing manuals for your products that include HTTP/Web proxies. The "Rewrite HTML" option causes not only HTML rewriting but also HTTP headers rewriting based on the head section <meta/> tags with the http-equiv attribute. The headers rewriting functionality seems to be undocumented.

    Please note that such an unconditional rewriting causes problems for web pages that have a construct like the following:

    &lt;head&gt;&lt;noscript&gt;&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;refresh&quot;…&gt;&lt;/noscript&gt;&lt;/head&gt;
    

    Adding a HTTP header based on such a construct causes a site to malfunction because it redirects the client…

  14. WAF: Allow Wildcard domain names

    Allow the use of wildcard domain names for Webservers. Also allow them to be sorted in priority so that a more specfic FQDN takes precidence over a wildcard domain.

  15. Proxy Pathing

    Provide the facility to publish sub-directories in path selection as well as static 'web server'. This is useful for many different reasons and has traditionally been known as proxy pathing. This allows a user to enter an FQDN and to have that transparently connect to a sub-directory of the web server. Also, it allows virtual directories of a single FQDN to transparently map to different sub-directories of the same server, or even a different web server entirely.

  16. Remove support for TLS v1.0 and Insecure Cyphers or Allow them to be disabled

    The XG still supports protocols that are insecure and fail PCI compliance scans. These protocols such as TLS v1.0, 64-bit block ciphers, etc should be able to be disabled through at a minimum the CLI and preferably the UI.

  19. IPv6 WAF Support

    Enable WAF Business rules for incoming IPv6 connections.

    All the protection is provided for IPv4 webserver, but hosting on IPv6 bypasses protections

  20. Reverse proxy add encodedslashes option

    Please provide the option in the Reverse proxy to enable encodedslashes for a specific virtual webserver.

    Because some web applications use for example %2F for a slash and the reverse proxy cannot translate this back to / because of allowencodedslashes is not enabled by default. So this results in a 404 error.

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#allowencodedslashes

    This is essential for Web Applications like SAP Fiori! I think we not the only company who have this issue.
