  1. WAF: SSO when path-specific-routing is used

    When path specific routing is enabled, users must authenticate in EVERY path they use even when paths use the SAME authentication policy. An example: a user is using Outlook web access in path /owa/ (1st authentication) and goes to OWA Options in path /ecp/ (2nd authentication), goes to some internal document (3rd authentication) and so on.

  3. Webserver Protection Password Validation for Forms template.

    Webserver Protection forms authentication do not have any kind of validation for wrong username or password. IF a user types in incorrect credentials there is not notification why, just reloads page. This product is not ready for production without it. Even the Hotspot login page have customization for errors. https://docs.sophos.com/nsg/sophos-firewall/17.5/Help/en-us/webhelp/onlinehelp/nsg/sfos/concepts/LoginPageTemplate.html

  4. WAF - Increase Page Timeout

    We would like it to be possible to increase the timeout period in for underlying web servers. In some specific requirements, web pages will take longer than 60 seconds to load - thus exceeding the hard-coded timeout of the Sophos XG.

    Please allow us to increase this timeout manually.

  5. Redirect HTTP to HTTPS on the same non-standard port

    WAF redirect custom port http automatically to https.

    it can not forward automatically when uses custom port. Example: listening port : 8080 with url: www.example.com and redirect HTTP and HTTPS (tick). User from internet request type url: http://www.example.com:8080. It will not automatic redirect https://www.example.com:8080. It shown " Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand Reason: You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port.
    Instead use the HTTPS scheme to access this URL, please." It is only work for port 80 redirect to https instead of custom port (based on Sophos Support Team). User…

  6. Send modsecurity rule hits over syslog

    For XG syslog, Web Server Protection Events only sends request information. If a request is matched against a Modsecurity rule from the common threats filter, this entry is not sent over via syslog, but it is logged locally in /log/reverseproxy.log. It's common industry practice to implement Modsecurity in monitor mode first in order to root out any false positives that could negatively effect the application. Not sending these rule hits makes it much more difficult to gather statistics. This is especially difficult if there are multiple deployments that need to be monitored. Having the entire reverseproxy.log streamed via syslog would…

  9. 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

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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!

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. "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…
