    • Astaro Authentication Agent for Mac/Linux

      What I am suggesting is you port the "Client Authentication program" and the "Astaro Security Agent" to linux(32/64), BSD(32/64) as well as Mac OS X.

      • Authentication: Support UserPortal Logins with "username@domain.com"

        Allow users to login to the User Portal with username@domain.com when joined to an Active Directory Domain

        Currently the users must login with their AD username only, using their email address does not work.

        • Authentication: Web Filter User-to-IP Mapping

          We need the user's ip mapping. Once a user is authenticated against the http proxy, the user source ip should be mapped in the user's object, so that we can create policy per user

                  • Authentication: Delete UTM user-object when deleted from backend server

                    When we remove a user from our LDAP Directory (namely eDirectory or ActiveDirectory) the User in UTM is untouched. It would be nice if the UTM could know about this and purge its matching user-object as well. (Or display us a report of users who are no longer seen on the backend server so we could trigger a delete periodically).

                    • AuthenticationAD OU and Group Synchronization

                      With more companies using the NSG platform for Web, Email and Endpoint Management, having the ability to import OU's and Groups become more important for policy management and reporting.

                      Having granular policy control for Web use or Email DLP is very important for both public and private sector businesses. Most mid - large businesses require a level of departmental reports, typicaly based on users being members of particular groups or OU's.

                      For more than a few hundred machines, endpoint policy control is easier with the ability to group and apply machines based on how they are grouped in AD -…

                      • Authentication: SSL-Encryption for Proxy Fallback Login

                        Please make the proxy authentication encrypted if the client does not support eDirectory SSO. Actually user and password are sent in human-readable cleartext.

                        Same thing for the transparent proxy with authentication. The login form is provided via http... Why not https?

                        • Authentication: Routing Authentication per Domain

                          It's important to have a chance in big customers the chance to route authentication process in base of domain name. it would an improvement about what there is already available. Example: users@gabriele.com will be authenticated by radius on server1; if authentication fail, users@gabriele.com will be authenticated by Active directory on server2. ecc.

                          Very efficient in big environment.

                          • Authentication: Configurable RADIUS timeout

                            The RADIUS timeout setting is hardcoded, and can't be adjusted from the UI. Third part two factor authentication systems like PhoneFactor use "out of band" methods to complete authentication. Such schemes can take 20-30 seconds to complete an Auth. With the current hardcoded RADIUS timeout Astrado is not compatible with these solutions as the timeout needs to be set appropriately.

                              Add a configuration option for adding a query filter attribute for additional email-addresses for user settings.
                              like searching for email destination (|(mail=%s)(otherMailbox=%s))

                              Its easier to maintain email-aliases like info@domain.tld in central directory.

                              Also, other attributes like First and Last name should be selectable if possible

                                  The only solution provided until now is to uninstall the Live ID, but it keeps getting installed by Windows Updates and has built in many applications (like the Essentials or Movie Maker).

                                  • Add optional PIN entry field for two-factor authentication

                                    There are really two big issues I have with the two factor authentication implementation. The first is that no where in the setup for the user is there any information or instruction as how to use two factor authentication. Every other two factor authentication that I have used has had a separate box for putting in the random code. I only learned about how to properly use two factor authentication after calling support and being informed that I needed to append the randomly generated code to the end of my password to which I say "Really! and you arn't going…

                                      • 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.…

                                        • L2TP/RADIUS use PAP flag

                                          We use an openldap server to maintain our user accounts for a large infrastructure of Linux hosts. Because the unix passwords are hashed with MD5, our radius server has to have the plaintext password passed to it to perform authentication against our LDAP server - we can not use any of the challenge/response type systems for authentication.

                                          The LDAP/Radius authentication system on the ASG expects to be able to use these challenge/response authentication protocols, and does not currently provide anyway to specify which to use from the UI. I can hack the /var/chroot-ipsec/ppp/options-default file and add stanzas like:

                                          refuse-eap
                                          refuse-chap …
