Description Sean Veale 2009-05-27 13:49:03 EDT
Description of problem:

The 404 error page is a security issue. Specifically it divulges Tomcat and the version number.

This should be corrected for all the tomcat instances (CA,KRA,TKS probally RA)
If the error page directive in the server.xml fileis set and supply a page, that is all that is needed.  The directive would look something like this:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CS 8.0 Beta2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.For any of the instances that use tomcat go to a page that doesn't exist. 
Actual results:
Page that shows the version info

Expected results:

New page, that can be modified to not show version info.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Matthew Harmsen 2009-06-10 14:36:00 EDT
Actually, the "404.html" page needs to contain enough information to prevent  Microsoft IE from overriding this behavior with its own "friendly" 404 error messages:


Additionally, are "404" error codes the ONLY error codes specified by the Tomcat STIG to require special handling?

NOTE:  Similar "customized" 404 error pages were applied to the RA and TPS
       Apache PKI subsystems as well.  As a result, there was a need to
       generate a top-level port-agnostic TPS Services page.
