Subject RE: HSTS missing from HTTPS server on tomcat 8.0.27

Missing HSTS is not a vulnerability, as Mark pointed out, it is a feature.
In your web.xml


This will NOT activate HSTS for your application, you will need to add this
mapping as well (edit to needs and add to application):

Subject: HSTS missing from HTTPS server on tomcat 8.0.27


We are unable to fix the vulnerability of "HSTS missing from HTTPS server" 
on apache tomcat  8.0.27 while running on unix operating system. Below is
the system configuration:

 OS Name:               HP-UX
 OS Version:            B.11.31
 Architecture:           IA64N
Java Home:            /opt/java8/jre
JVM Version:
JVM Vendor:           Hewlett-Packard Company

We have uncommented the httpHeaderSecurity in the filter tag of conf/web.xml
file, but still the vulnerability exists. We have also tried with apache
tomcat 8.0.30, but in vain.

Any help to fix this vulnerability is appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
Deepak Kumar
