Is Vesta Control Panel Secure?

  • Posted September 22, 2013

I have tried a bunch of free control panels and posted on my impressions elsewhere in these forums. Of all the control panels I have tried, Vesta is clearly the best. I really want to use it, however I want some reassurance about its security before I use it for production servers.

I don’t really know anything about server and control panel security. Can anyone who is qualified please let me know if Vesta is safe to use?

Here is the link to the project page:

Thank you!

Hi man. I also trying VestaCP and I like it as well.

Tell me please, what have you researched on this topic?

Well. <br> <br>I liked ISPconfig for they security point and ftp ssh and other jails <br> <br>I’m just installing VEsta to check those points. <br> <br>I hope it use the inmutable bytes and chrooted users

I got this answer on the Vesta forums: <br> <br>“Vesta is a is an open source product. Source code has been deeply analyzed by dozen people who work with the security. There are no known security issue at the moment. Vesta doesn’t store plain passwords in the database. We use salted md5 and relay on a linux Pluggable Authentication Modules aka PAM.” <br> <br>

Thanks for the super fast reply! I know that DO cannot provide any guarantees about any software. I am just hoping that someone can let me know if Vesta is safe to use, or at least as safe as some other major control panels. <br> <br>Thanks!

We can not reassure you about any software. <br> <br>Everything that is like this has possible security flaws. <br> <br>As such, use it at your own risk.
