@jbforster , this is a known observation on older version of lmadmin. Majority of these vulnerabilities have been fixed in FNP-11.17.0 release. However, one vulnerability for " " is still under assessment and engineering might fix it in future releases.

As a workaround for older version of lmadmin, the following workaround can possibly be used to include, (at lmadmin startup), the required extra Apache httpd directives from another user-provided configuration file, into the "conf/httpd.conf" generated by lmadmin at startup.

In "conf/server.xml", the license administrator needs to append the following attribute - includeHttpdConfigFile="conf\sampleExtra.conf" - for the "configuration->webServer" XML element as shown below.

<webServer documentRoot="web" logRoot="logs" maxRequestSize="4" maxThreads="10" pageSize="20" port="8099" redirectHTTP="false" securePort="0" includeHttpdConfigFile="conf\sampleExtra.conf">

 

And, the contents of "conf\sampleExtra.conf" file can be something like as follows:

Header always set Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000; includeSubDomains; preload"
Header always set X-XSS-Protection "1; mode=block"
Header always set X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
