CA API Gateway


We have a security problem with the Layer7 API Gateway 10.1 CR01
There was a pentest and hereby we found a problem with the implementation of the TRACE method in Layer7 API Gateway.
The return of 405 is ok, but the mirroring of the input headers (e.g. the authorization-header) is a security issue.


Release : 10.1

Component : API GATEWAY


This will be fixed in CR2 as it was caused by a upgrade of tomcat library files
