Purpose of myVesta secret URL

Post by dpeca »

Idea of secret-url is to protect you from (hypothetical) zero-day security vulnerabilities.
For example, someone discover security vulnerability in Vesta php script, makes bot that will scan all IP rangs, find all Vesta servers, and makes massive hack of all servers.
With secret url, hackers will not find your myVesta server.

If someone find security vulnerability we will fix it immediately, so there is no time for your users to hack you, even if they have high hacker skills ;)

It is absolutely safe to give someone your secret URL, it's just a link that will open login form of myVesta.
He can not hack you with that URL.
With secret url, he will just be able to load login form of myVesta.

is a great security feature but i am not shure why but it constantly asks me for my credentials, every time I go to do something I get the login form and I have to log in again. More than sure it becomes overwhelming.

for example:
go https://vesta.mysite:8083/?myhideurl and login, go to Web section and resturn login page, again user/pass-login.
Not happen always, is like random or inactive time. Sometime the login prompt several times.

Maybe your IP is changing... maybe you switched to VPN... or changed ISP...
