  1. Generate security audits fails

    Azure complains about "Generate security audits":

    EXPECTED VALUELocal Service, Network Service, IIS APPPOOL\DefaultAppPool

    Which actually are there.. even that Azure says:

    • Incorrect Baseline CCE-38333-1

      CCE-38333-1

      LocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon : scremoveoption
      ...ExpectedResult:1
      ...ActualResult:NOT_EXISTS

      This setting exists although the baseline tool does not detect that it does. Perhaps its looking for an integer instead of a string?

      • Incorrect Baseline CCE-37439-7

        CCE-37439-7

        ...RuleSetting:LocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon : cachedlogonscount
        ...ExpectedResult:4
        ...ActualResult:NOT_EXISTS

        This shows as not exists even though the registry value exists. Maybe its checking for an integer when it should really be checking for a string?

        • CCE-37701-0 Incorrect Baseline

          CCE-37701-0

          ...RuleSetting:LocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon : AllocateDASD
          ...ExpectedResult:0
          ...ActualResult:NOT_EXISTS

          The above baseline shows as non-existent even though it exists.

          Is the rule checking for a string or integer as this should be a string value per microsoft

            • ASC broken Fix please: Users who are Owner of VMs should see VMs in ASC

              Azure Security Center is broken, Fix please: Users who are Owner of VMs should see VMs in Azure Security Center

              Although documented here https://azure.microsoft.com/nl-nl/documentation/articles/security-center-faq/
              "... this means that users will only see items related to resources where the user is assigned the role of Owner, Contributor, or Reader to the subscription or resource group that a resource belongs to."
              This does not work in a full ARM RBAC Model setup.

              Users who are Owner of VMs, don't see VMs in Azure Security Center.

                Thanks.

                Indeed today Azure Security Center has experiences that can’t live in a single resource hierarchy and so not applicable for users with access to a single resource (i.e. and not the the containing subscription/resource group). We will look into adding a scoped down resource level experience for such users. No ETA to provide at this point.

                Thanks,

              • Provide functionality to remediate OS vulnerabilities identified by Security Center (and revert if they cause issues)

                Security Center provides many recommendations to harden OS vulnerabilities, but doesn't currently offer the option to remediate them. It would be very time consuming for customers to develop their own fixes in isolation and would cause huge duplication of effort - please would Microsoft provide the option to apply the hardening to VMs via Security Center, with the option to "undo" if it causes problems.

                • Add an option to upload the Antivirus of your choice in security center

                  As of now there is only few third party partner integration for Endpoint Protection in security center, it will be good if a customer can upload an Antivirus package (EXE\MSI) and use it to remediate against endpoint protection's recommendations.

                  • Adhoc check "Security Baseline Assesment"

                    I want to check my server setting by "Security Baseline Assessment".
                    When updating group policy, and When decreasing Failed rule numbers.

                    Now, I need to wait next 24 hours after updating group policy to get checking rule results.

                    • Create a community open source repository

                      It would be great to get the security community engage with Azure Security Center and allow for community contributions. I imagine that it could be something like the Azure Automation Runbook community repository, but this would be focused on integration with Azure Security Center. Azure Security Center needs to create open API for custom community developed solution like mentioned in this feedback: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/347535-azure-security-center/suggestions/12366438-support-for-letting-apps-send-custom-alerts-to-sec

                        • Publish event list + blog post on security filter settings page

                          Would be helpful to have the event list according to the level of security events selected on the settings page instead of needing to go to the blog post on the web.
                          Please also include the link to the official blog in this page

                            Have you considered having Gaurdicore as a partner solution in the marketplace? I sawe their technology at Blackhat and this seems to be a gap in Azure Security Center.

                            • DeBlackListing

                              Allow for unblacklisting applications inside OMS. From time to time mail relays get blacklisted due to a spammer/phishing attempt. The facility to apply to remove from common blacklists within OMS would be a great feature.

                              • GatewaySubnet NSG recommendation

                                It is not allowed to attach a NSG to the GatewaySubnet in a virtual network. So it would be good if the recommendation in the Security Center of the GatewaySubnet would be not to attach a NSG.

                                Just mark it as green, because we cannot attach a NSG to the GatewaySubnet.

                                      Azure Security Center already has some basic SOC features around monitoring and we’re certainly planing to extend those in the future. However, since SOC is a broad term it would help if you would be more specific about what exactly you had in mind and and what virtual SOC scenario you would find the most useful in Azure Security Center.

                                    • Additional Linux information on VM Security Details blade

                                      1- Can the Linux release and Kernel version be displayed in the VM Security Details blade (or elsewhere in Security Center)?

                                      2- Can the update count be displayed in that blade? Similar to the "x packages can be updated, y updates are security updates" message from the MOTD when logging in to Ubuntu over SSH.

                                      • Provide support for downloading Security Center recommendations as PDF and as CSV

                                        Similar to Advisor, provide the capability of exporting the recommendations as PDF and CSV so it can be shared and prioritized by others in the organization.

                                        • Rename AAC groups

                                          Adaptive Application Control assigns vm's to groups with generic names

                                          I'd like the ability to see in a table or list which VM's are "grouped" together. I'd like to have the ability to group them myself (based on common functionality) AND I'd like the ability to name the groups.

                                          If possible: via powershell or AZ cli.
