SecureAuth /admin/ endpoint is visible by default

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  all


    The /admin/ endpoint is exposed by default on current IdP servers.

    The realms.json file may be interesting but upon review the data is not valid for any configured appliance.



    This is a default configuration. Said endpoint only contains template data and no actual data from a configured IdP server.



    This endpoint can be blocked via IP Address restrictions or by using an IIS Rewrite rule to disallow any access/browsing of the /Admin endpoint.

    The easiest option is to use URL rewrite.


    1. Open up IIS Manager

    2. Navigate down through Sites | Default Web Site | to the Admin site

    3. Double click URL Rewrite

    4. Click Add Rule(s)...

    5. Select Request blocking and click OK

    6. Set Block access based on IP address

    7. Block request that does NOT match the pattern

    8. Set the Pattern to

    9. Click OK



    Special Considerations:  

    See article Create a Redirect from any Realm to a new Realm for information on creating a redirect within the IIS Manager on the SecureAuth IdP for a way to remedy this.
