10.2 Restrict access to the web administration application


Limit access to the web administration application to only those with a justified need.


Limiting access to the least privilege will ensure only those people with justified need will have access to a resource. The web administration application should be limited to only administrators.


For the administration application, edit $CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml and uncomment the following:

<Valve className='org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve' allow=''/>

Note: The RemoteAddrValve property expects a regular expression, therefore periods and other regular expression meta-characters must be escaped.

Default Value:

By default, this configuration is not present.
