Fix Recommendation

Determine the location of the "HTTPD_ROOT" directory and the "httpd.conf" file:

# httpd -V | egrep -i 'httpd_root|server_config_file'
-D HTTPD_ROOT="/etc/httpd"
-D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

Set "Session" to "on".

Ensure the "SessionCookieName" directive includes "httpOnly" and "secure".

Check Contents

In a command line, run "httpd -M | grep -i session_cookie_module".

If "session_cookie_module" is not listed, this is a finding.

Determine the location of the "HTTPD_ROOT" directory and the "httpd.conf" file:

# httpd -V | egrep -i 'httpd_root|server_config_file'
-D HTTPD_ROOT="/etc/httpd"
-D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

Search for the "Session" and "SessionCookieName" directives:

# cat /<path_to_file>/httpd.conf | grep -i "Session"
# cat /<path_to_file>/httpd.conf | grep -i "SessionCookieName"

If "Session" is not "on" and "SessionCookieName" does not contain "httpOnly" and "secure", this is a finding.
