    1. Predefined Access Rules for Every Region

      Microsoft Azure should have predefined access rules for every region.
      For example, if someone wants to block traffic for every region except only one, should choose to allow for the specific one and add block rule for every other region.
      That would be good for DDos attacks.

    2. Network Security Groups - Windows Server Roles and Features Rules

      Can a feature be added to allow easy addition of inbound and outbound rules to an NSG for Windows Server Roles e.g. Active Directory Domain Services to add rules for SMB/LDAP/Kerberos to match the rules created/enable by adding a Feature in Server Manager in Windows Server OSs.

    3. apply filter ip origen azure in NGS

      apply filter ip origen azure in NGS.
      This option is like "Allow access to Azure services" in "SQL server Azure"

    4. Add Standard set of Network Security Group Rules for Inbound and outbound traffic when creating new rules.

      I would like to see standard set of NSG rules for each new subscription that gets created for securing environment. for example SQL, SCCM, DMZ, App servers(Web servers), RDP etc. where we have ability to change the names according to our naming conventions and populate or have options to choose subnets, single VM.

    5. Allow referencing an Azure resource by id in Network Security Groups

      NSG's should allow the use of Azure resource ID in addition to ip addresses for NSGs. For example, if I reference the ID of a webapp, then the rule will apply to the public IPs of that webapp. If I reference an azure VM, then the rule will apply to the ip address of that vm. And so on. It would make it so much more flexible to build up rules by using resource id's/names than today's very static and cumbersome implementation, especially for complex rules.

    7. create predefined NSG for Azure Datacenters IP Range

      Let's say I have a VM that I want to restrict access from the outside. I want this VM to be accessible from my onprem IPs and from Azure IPs (since a part of my infrastructure is on azure). Since at the moment of discussion ARM VMs do not support static IP address, it will be very useful to create a NSG for allowing traffic only from azure IP ranges. Right now you cannot create such NSG because a NSG only allows a maximum of 100 rules. So, it will be a great idea to have predefined NSG to limit…

    8. Add my client ip to allowed list in Inbound NSG

      Please, add "add client ip" button for inbound security rules like we have for sql azure

      Example why/when we need it: I'm it admin, all my deployment in azure(no site/point to site vpn). I want to have a full access to my azure resources for a next 1-2h. Now I can manually add this rule, but I will spend some time to clarify my current client ip. With this button it will be faster.

      Maybe it's sound like keys from kingdom and it's not secured, but I can do it manually anyway. Maybe you could create a temporary inbound rule…

    10. Add ability to use a Network Security Group (NSG) as a rule source/target

      Currently NSG rules have the concept of the source or target being a Tag, and there are a couple predefined tags (Internet, VirtualNetwork, and AzureLoadBalancer). It would be nice if there was a similar feature where you could select the source or target being another network security group. Resources would be considered part of a NSG if they have their network interface associated with that NSG, they are in a subnet associated with that NSG, or they are in a VNET associated with that NSG. This essentially creates a subnet that has a dynamic address space.
