Article summary

The following is available from CTERA Portal version 8.1.1417.12.

From Content Security Policy (CSP) can help protect CTERA Portal when a secure policy is defined. The policy must prevent the execution of untrusted scripts using CSP. When CSP is enabled on the CTERA Portal, every request that goes through the portal server has a CSP with strict rules.


In some cases, where strict is colliding with GUI functionalities, the CSP is less strict.

All CTERA Portal responses use a strict CSP except for the following pages, where a less strict CSP is enforced:

  • /ServicesPortal/pcc-viewer-frame.html
  • /staff/pcc-viewer-frame.html
  • /admin/pcc-viewer-frame.html
  • /invitations/pcc-viewer-frame.html
  • /admin/dialog.html
  • /admin/index.old.html
  • /admin/setup.html,
  • /ServicesPortal/admin.old.html
  • /ServicesPortal/dialog.html
  • /admin/login.old.html
  • /ServicesPortal/login.old.html
  • ServicesPortal/page.html
  • staff/dialog.html
  • staff/login.old.html
  • /common/portalbeta/templates/filePreview/file.preview.print.template.tpl.html
  • /admin/preview
  • /ServicesPortal/preview
  • /staff/preview

Enabling CSP does not require any addition CTERA resources.
