An HTTP server is enabled on the device-juniper-junos

Vendor: juniper

OS: junos

Description:
Indeni will check if a device has the HTTP service enabled. HTTP is not encrypted and is therefore a security risk.

Remediation Steps:
Disable the HTTP server on the device.

How does this work?
If “telnet” and “http” are enabled on the device, it is recommanded to disable them and enable “ssh” and “https” instead to remediate the security risks.

Why is this important?
The system services “telnet” and “http” are not recommanded to enable on the device for security reasons.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could log on to the device to identify whether telnet and http are enabled.

    telnet-enabled:
        why: |
            Telnet is an unsecure protocol and should not be used. Users may enable telnet unintentionally and should be alerted if they do so.
        how: |
            If "telnet" and "http" are enabled on the device, it is recommanded to disable them and enable "ssh" and "https" instead to remediate the security risks.
