feature request - https for webui

Fri Jul 24, 2020 2:34 pm

Dear MikroTik team,

I recently bought a MikroTik CRS317-1G-16S+RM and I am very happy with the device. Because Router OS was a little overwhealming I switched to SwOS which is great. The only thing I am missing is https for the webui. Is there a possibility that you port this feature from Router OS to switch OS as far as I understood Router OS has this feature?

Thanks in advance

hansdampf :-)

Not trying to downplay your request, but: what is your use case where plain http isn't good enough?

It is quite reasonably to want this feature. I don't need it - my switches (and the networks) are all under my physical control. But you can't always have this. If the switch he manages is behind a single third part router, he already needs HTTPS.

Or a CRS and VPN - but this is RoS only, and we are talking SwOS.

Dear mkx,

thank you for your question. I am not requesting this because http isn't good enough. Besides the fact that most browsers complain about plan authentication via http it is because of security considerations. If a computer in my network would get compromised I want as little attacking vectors as possible. All my webapplications are served via https. Logins to servers are all secured via ssh. LDAP login is also secured via ldaps and so on... So it would be great to have this feature.

Thanks for supporting my request.

Why not SSH to the unit (better than web based config)?
You could go back to RouterOS(The switch menu is there, if you need pure wire-speed config ) and use Winbox or SSH for secure logging in.
RouterOS supports HTTPS too.

Because not all units can run RoS. The CRS can - the CSS no. I have two CSS326, and they can't run RoS. There is a version that can - the CRS326.
