Header security

Guz is Cloudflare have to do any thing with header security?
I am facing issue in my website

They’ll set some headers but that alone doesn’t protect you, there’s many they cannot set as it’d affect site functionality/etc, take a look at these essential headers to worry about.

  • Content-Security-Policy (CSP): A powerful set of rules determining what actions can occur on your page, effectively reducing the risk of various attacks.
  • Cross-Origin-Opener-Policy (COOP): Helps isolate processes associated with your web page, enhancing its security.
  • Cross-Origin-Resource-Policy (CORP): Prevents external sources from loading your resources across different origins, bolstering security.
  • Origin-Agent-Cluster (OAC): Alters process isolation based on website origin, strengthening security measures.
  • Referrer-Policy: Manages the behavior of the Referer header for enhanced control over user information sharing.
  • Strict-Transport-Security (HSTS): Instructs browsers to prioritize HTTPS connections, improving security.
  • X-Content-Type-Options: Prevents MIME sniffing, reducing vulnerabilities related to content type confusion.
  • X-DNS-Prefetch-Control: Manages DNS prefetching behavior for enhanced control and optimization.
  • X-Download-Options: Enforces file downloads to be saved instead of opened directly (applies to Internet Explorer only).
  • X-Frame-Options: An older header that guards against clickjacking attacks by limiting how a page can be embedded in an iframe.
  • X-Permitted-Cross-Domain-Policies: Governs cross-domain behavior for Adobe products, such as Acrobat.
  • X-Powered-By: Previously provided information about the web server but has been removed due to potential security risks.
  • X-XSS-Protection: An older header aimed at mitigating XSS attacks, but it’s known to cause issues; Helmet, a security tool, typically disables it for better security.
