How to protect AEM against CSRF Attack ?

How to protect AEM against CSRF Attack ? Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) is a popular content management system that is widely used to develop and manage websites, mobile apps, and other digital experiences. However, like any other web application, AEM is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. CSRF attacks are malicious attacks where an attacker tricks a user into performing an action they did not intend to perform by exploiting the user's active session on a website. In this blog, we will discuss some measures that can be taken to protect AEM from CSRF attacks.   Implement CSRF protection in AEM:   The first and most important step to protect AEM from CSRF attacks is to implement CSRF protection in the application. AEM provides a built-in CSRF protection mechanism that can be enabled by setting the "sling.filter.methods" property in the OSGi configuration. This property specifies which HTTP methods are allowed to execute without requiring a CSRF

How to Configure CSP header in AEM , Dispatcher ?

How to Configure CSP header in AEM ? Content Security Policy (CSP) is a security feature that helps prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) and other code injection attacks by restricting the sources from which a page can load resources. To implement a CSP header in an Apache web server, you can use the Header directive in your Apache configuration. Here are the steps to implement a CSP header in Apache: Determine your CSP policy: First, you need to determine your CSP policy. This policy defines the rules for what types of content can be loaded from which sources. You can use a CSP policy generator like the one available on the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) website to generate a policy that meets your needs. Add the CSP header to your Apache configuration: Once you have your CSP policy, you can add the CSP header to your Apache configuration. To do this, open your Apache configuration file (usually located at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf or a similar location depending on your setup) and

AEM Security Headers

Added Security in AEM via Headers:-  In design a robust architecture AEM Architects, Developers, Infrastructure Engineers regularly come across a challenge for adding the additional security in AEM.  In this article, we will understand the key security headers which can be used in webserver and give an additional layer of security for your Publish server and content.  I have used Apache webserver for all the examples.  This article covers -  1 - X-XSS protection  2 - HTTP Strick Transport Security 3 - X-Frame Option  4 - Content Security  1- X-XSS Protection:-  X-XSS-Protection header can prevent some level of XSS (cross-site-scripting ) attacks.  Configure the x-xss-protection header to 1 in your apache httpd.conf file or Vhost file if you have for all domains as applicable.   <IfModule mod_headers.c>   <FilesMatch "\.(htm|html)$">                         #Force XSS (should be on by default in most browsers anyway)
