  1. Reverse Proxy: Authentication Offloading like TMG

    will there be a feature like Authentication / captive portal (e.g. the proxy settings"transparent with authentication" ) for enabling a reverse proxy?
    This would be so usfull for small installations with no frontend exchange / DMZ.
    (juniper calls this "webauth" )

      We are hard at work on this feature and will deliver the first implementation of front end authentication as part of our Web Server protection (reverse proxy) in UTM 9.2. The public beta will begin in October. Stay Tuned!

    • URL Redirection

      It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

      For example:

      www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
      www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

      Thank you :)

      • Webserver Protection: Reverse Authentification with NTLM and Kerberos

        The Reverse Authentification feature (UTM 9.2) for WAF is a nice progres, but I'm hoping that it will soon be extended. There are many scenarios that require at least NTLM; Kerberos would be nice as well. Yes, we are coming from TMG :-)

        • Web Server Protection: Certificate-based Authentication

          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.

          • websocket support for WAF

            we are hosting a SignalR hub (http://signalr.net/) behind a Sophos UTM 320. We use the Web Server Protection feature extensively in our environment, and as such have opted to use the same for this.
            SignalR will always try to use Web Sockets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebSocket), a new HTML5 API, and fallback to other technologies where this isn't possible to be used.
            Since we've been hosting the hub via the reverse proxy, none of our clients are able to connect via Web Sockets :so having support for websockets in WAF would be super cool

            • Web Server Protection: Support for ActiveSync 14.1

              WAF doesn't support ActiveSync 14.1, i.e. after you install SP3 for Exchange 2010, you can't use use WAF to protect your ActiveSync Server anymore. This is poor.

              • Web Application Firewall: Remote Desktop Gateway support

                Similar to support for Outlook Anywhere, it would be really beneficial if the WAF allowed for the publishing of Remote Desktop Gateway and handled those methods. RDG_OUT_DATA followed by RPC_IN_DATA and RPC_OUT_DATA, and including /RemoteDesktopGateway in the request. It seems like common functionality that many customers must be looking for...

                • Web Server Security: Support for Wildcard Domain Routing

                  It would be great, if you could add " *.domain.com " in WAF.
                  So that you dont need to add every single FQDN for every site.

                    This feature will be included as part of UTM 9.2 which will enter beta in September 2013. Stay tuned!

                  • Web Application Security: Remote Desktop Support

                    Equal as Outlook Anywhere Remote Desktop uses RPC requests. In the meantime Outlook Anywhere is supported officially by UTM 9.1 So I hope the effort for the develovers will be small to implement it as well. I think the advantage will be huge for many of use, because many customer ask for it.

                    • Web Server Protection: Transparent reverse proxy

                      Please provide the option to use reverse proxy also with transparent mode. This way permits to have the real remote host IP traced on the web server log files instead of the IP of the firewall. Now without transparent mode, every web analyzer software is not able to give real traffic reports...

                          Site Path Routing should have an option to treat the path in a case neutral manner.

                            For web sites with larger uploads (e.g. ownCloud) there is currently a 128MB (134217728 byte) limit in Web Server protection, the so called request body limit in ModSecurity.
                            Please add the possibility to configure this parameter (it's "SecRequestBodyLimit" in the Apache config) to allow larger uploads to sites protected by WAF.

                            • WebServer Protection: GZIP encoding of proxied HTTP traffic

                              The WAF strips the Accept-Encoding header from client requests, which is fine, as compression is not generally useful between the origin server and the proxy. However, it doesn't use the header itself, either. It doesn't compress proxied traffic before returning it to the client. Interestingly, pages generated by the WAF itself (such as error documents) are compressed. Only the proxied content remains uncompressed, and this can have a substantial impact on page speed.

                              • Web Application Firewall OTP support for form to form authentication

                                Support for form to form authentication with one time passwords in the WAF.

                                The WAF should be able to pass authentication through to a website which authenticates using a form (as opposed to only basic auth) if there is configuration on the UTM that defines the URL to the page which can process the login (not the login form) and the field names for the username and password.

                                  • Source IP restriction for website / paths

                                    Please implement the ability to restrict access to specific paths on a website to defined source IP's. Usually this has been done on the webserver, but NAT'ting of the Webserver Protection breaks this feature on webservers (sees the internal IP of UTM instead of public source IP).

                                    Usage Examples:

                                    a)
                                    Website globally allowed
                                    path /administrator only allowed to defined source IP's

                                    b)
                                    Partner hosts a private company Website - should anly be accessible from Company public IP's
                                    path / only allowed to defined source IP's

                                    • MDM based access through Reverse Proxy

                                      With MDM (as a service) being connected to a UTM it would be good to be able to set up a Reverse Proxy (WAF) profile as counterpart. I.e.: only devices allowed by MDM may pass to ActiveSync.

                                      This way it would not be necessary to set up a dedicated machine for this task and DNAT rule (and you can still use 443 for other webservers as well on the same IP).

                                      This way UTM and MDM would benefit (UTM being more value to MDM SaaS customers). This will greatly emphasize Sophos product interconnection.

                                      • Extend Security for Microsoft Exchange OWA 2010 Publishing

                                        The strong security features like URL-hardening, cookie-signing and form-hardening are still not available with owa newer than 2003. The knowledgebase just told me, to deactivate those feature. But they are important for higher security level.
