Obfuscate HTTP responses

Obfuscate HTTP responses

The FortiGate unit can obfuscate the HTTP responses from the FortiGate admin GUI and SSL VPN servers. By default this option is not enabled. To obfuscate HTTP headers, use the following CLI command:

config system global

set http-obfuscate {none | header-only | modified | no-error}




none — do not hide the FortiGate web server identity. header-only — hides the HTTP server banner. modified — provides modified error responses.

no-error — suppresses error responses.
