AS24-U1-000030 - The Apache web server must use cryptography to protect the integrity of remote sessions - SSLProtocol

Information

Data exchanged between the user and the Apache web server can range from static display data to credentials used to log on to the hosted application. Even when data appears to be static, the non-displayed logic in a web page may expose business logic or trusted system relationships. The integrity of all the data being exchanged between the user and the Apache web server must always be trusted. To protect the integrity and trust, encryption methods should be used to protect the complete communication session.

Solution

# cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf | grep 'SSLProtocol - ALL +TLSv1.2'

Ensure the 'SSLProtocol' is added to the ssl.conf file and looks like the following:

SSLProtocol -ALL +TLSv1.2

Restart Apache: apachectl restart
