How to prevent DOS attacks in AEM ?

Prevent Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks : AEM  A denial of service (DoS) attack is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. You can get more information on DDoS prevention in Apache At the dispatcher level, there are two methods of configuring to prevent DoS attacks: Use the mod_rewrite module (for example,  Apache 2.4 ) to perform URL validations (if the URL pattern rules are not too complex). Prevent the dispatcher from caching URLs with spurious extensions by using  filters .  For example, change the caching rules to limit caching to the expected mime types, such as .html .jpeg .gif .swf .js .doc .pdf .ppt .... as per your project requirement. An example configuration file is given below,  for  this includes restrictions for mime types.      When configuring Dispatcher you should restrict external access as much as possible. The      following example provides example for the minimal access for external visitors, you can refer the default file.  /fi

Security best Practice in AEM

 Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) is a popular content management system that is widely used by businesses to manage and publish digital content. With the increasing amount of sensitive data being stored and shared online, it's important for AEM users to be aware of the security features that the platform offers. In this blog, we'll discuss some of the key security features of AEM and provide tips for keeping your AEM instance secure. Authentication and Authorization AEM provides several options for authentication and authorization. Users can log in using their credentials, which can be verified using LDAP or other external identity providers. Once authenticated, users are assigned roles and permissions, which determine what actions they can perform within AEM. To keep your AEM instance secure, it's important to ensure that users only have the permissions they need to perform their jobs. For example, if a user doesn't need to publish content, they should not be given perm

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)                  

HTTP Smuggling in AEM , How to prevent it ?

HTTP Smuggling is a technique used by attackers to inject malicious requests into a web application. This can cause significant security risks and data breaches if not addressed properly. In this blog, we will discuss what HTTP Smuggling is, how it can be exploited, and the solution to prevent it in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). What is HTTP Smuggling? HTTP Smuggling is a technique where attackers can manipulate the HTTP requests sent to a web server to bypass security mechanisms. The attacker can manipulate the request in a way that makes it look like a legitimate request to the server, but in reality, it is carrying malicious payloads. This technique is particularly dangerous because it can be used to bypass firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and web application firewalls (WAFs). How can HTTP Smuggling be Exploited in AEM? AEM is a popular web content management system used by organizations worldwide. As with any web application, AEM is vulnerable to HTTP Smuggling attacks if

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
