SYMP-NM-000230 - Symantec ProxySG must implement HTTPS-console to provide replay-resistant authentication mechanisms for network access to privileged accounts. - HTTP-Console


A replay attack may enable an unauthorized user to gain access to the application. Authentication sessions between the authenticator and the application validating the user credentials must not be vulnerable to a replay attack.

An authentication process resists replay attacks if it is impractical to achieve a successful authentication by recording and replaying a previous authentication message.

Techniques used to address this include protocols using nonces (e.g., numbers generated for a specific one-time use) or challenges (e.g., TLS, WS_Security). Additional techniques include time-synchronous or challenge-response one-time authenticators.


Enable TLS management services.

1. Log on to Web Management Console.
2. Click Configuration >> Services >> Management Services.
3. Make sure that 'HTTPS-Console' is 'Enabled'.
4. Uncheck 'Enabled' next to that 'HTTP-Console'.
5. Click 'Apply'.
