  1. Global Bot / Script Kiddie / Brute Force IP Blacklist

    Sophos should maintain a blacklist of Bots / Script Kiddies / Brute Force attackers based on big data of failed logins on UTM's.

    Problem to solve:
    There are lot of (often automated) login attempts to the different publicly available UTM facilities as SMTP (authenticated relaying), User Portal, Webadmin, SSH, Reverse Proxy. On my UTM I have for example since weeks a ongoing brute force attacks on the smtp proxy, as authenticated relaying is allowed on it. Blocking those bots after 5 attempts helps only marginal, as they automatically switch to other bots (new IP) and continue the brute force attack.…

    • Allow multiple networks for Masquerade Rules

      We have dozens of RED devices. Adding individual NAT Masquerade Rules is very tedious when you can only select a SINGLE source object per rule. Would be nice to have a single Masquerade rule with multiple sources so I could just add either a new Network definition to the existing rule.

      • Link SSL Virtual IP pool to a specific profile instead to SSL

        When using SSL Remote access, all profiles use the same IP Pool. If you want to create a profile "network administrators" who has full access to the network and another profile "simple user" who has limited access to network, the "simple users" can access every network the "network administrators" can as long it adds manually the route on its computer.
        It is not possible to filter that with the firewall, because both profiles use the same Virtual IP pool. This is a security issue !

        The solution would be to allow to chose one Virtual IP Pool per profile, so…

          • default expressions

            I would suggest that a default expressions list is implemented for the anti spam features of the UTM. I think a default list of expressions (especially pornographic or vulgar) that you can either enable as a whole or individually would be a good idea. I am currently in the process of listing multiple expressions that would have no business existing inside of a professional email and would like to see obvious offensive words able to be blocked by default.

            • Expand statistic for bridge concerning underlying hardware

              If you use bridges with more than two interfaces or multiple bridged vlans, it would be great to know the statistic for services and bandwidth for the involved single hardware-interface!

                      • Introduce fail-over thresholds

                        When you have two interfaces configured in active/standby mode, and your active interface experiences intermittent issues, the UTM will rapidly flick between the active and standby interfaces. This can cause connections to continuously drop, depending on how frequent the issues with your active connection are.

                        It would be helpful if there was a threshold to the failover, for example allowing me to state "If active down, failover to standby. When active up, wait for $x continuous minutes of uptime before resuming use of that interface". This allows the device to handle connectivity issues in a more graceful way.

                          • Don't Keep Write Ahead Logs (WALs) in Non-clustered Installations

                            By default, the Sophos UTM (Astaro) PostreSQL configuration is configured with High Availability (HA) settings enabled irrespective of whether a HA license is installed and/or two or more devices are installed. One of these settings, wal_keep_segments, has been set to a value of 100 ever since Sophos UTM version 9.100-16 and since each Write Ahead Log (WAL) segment is 16MB, this results in a extra 1.6GB of disk space being consumed unnecessarily. The default value for wal_keep_segments is 0 and setting it to this value before starting the PostgreSQL service prevents it from keeping any new WAL segments. I have…

                                • When manually defining Soft Token, provide a RANDOM Secret button.

                                  When using the One Time Password (OTP) facility to manually build Soft Tokens for users; it would be nice if the UTM could provide a 'Generate Random Secret' button; as currently you have to manuall source/define a 128 bit hex secret key. Using a Random string generator that confirms to the UTM requirements of manually defined OTP secrets would make things easier.

                                  • Checkbox for auto-activating a new firewall-rule

                                    We sometimes forget to activate a new firewall-rule after creating it (we are humans :-) ) - it should be easy to integrate a checkbox in the new-firewall-rule-template that will automatically activate the firewall-rule after creating it! Thats even faster and more reliable! Thanks in advance!

                                      I would appreciate to support certificate-based authentication like at Microsoft TMG. I don't know why Sophos is making advertisements for "Replace your TMG with Sophos UTM" if UTM even can't do this! I want the reverse proxy to check a client certificate, If this certificate is not valid or it doesn't exists it shows an error page.

                                      TMG Config: http://4sysops.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/SSL-Client-Certificate-Authentication_thumb.png

                                      • access to vouchersmanagment by usersright

                                        We ve 2 Wlans with vouchers. Wlan 1 for guests and Wlan 2 for some special users with morge free ports and more access into the lan.
                                        An option to allow user 1 to manage only vouchers for wlan1 and allow user 2 to make vouchers or wlan 1 and 2 would be nice.

                                        • Add a support for Amazon SES (Simple Email Service)

                                          Needs a postfix and stunnel implementation.
                                          Will solve much hassle with configuring.
