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


LOGGING OF THE X-FORWARDED-FOR HEADER The dev-opes team , struggles to find the end user IP while working / troubleshooting the DOS, D-DOS attacks/issue.  To troubleshoot such issue first thing you need to do is , log the end user IP.  Please follow the steps to do the same.  In the Apache HTTP Server's access_log, add this to the httpd.conf file in the dispatcher servers: LogFormat "%{X-Forwarded-For}i %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" combined LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common LogFormat "%{Referer}i -> %U" referer LogFormat "%{User-agent}i" agent In Microsoft IIS add X-Forwarded-For in the  "Advanced Logging"  configuration. That would log the correct end-user IP. Use the output showing the IP and User-Agent to analyse whether it is a malicious attack and block the offending IPs if it makes sense. 2.
