Ample header security reports
The header security report automatically shows you every vulnerability found. Crashtest Security classifies for you the weaknesses in different risk levels and comes up with recommendations and suggestions on how to fix these issues.
Don’t lose time researching the solutions. You’ll find an exclusive wiki where we analyze in detail how to solve every HTTP header that you don’t have correctly set.
Extensive Vulnerability Findings
The report starts with an overview of your scan target, the severity of the reported vulnerabilities, and a checklist of exploited attack paths and scanner status.
Each identified vulnerability contains risk classification, analysis, and remediation instructions.

What is a security header?
Security headers can effectively prevent a variety of hacking attempts. Therefore, you should consider headers like Strict-Transport-Security, Content-Security-Policy, X-Frame-Options, or X-XSS-Protection.
These directives were created to increase the protection and provide extra defense against vulnerabilities using browsers. For example, they modify the behavior of web browsers to avoid security vulnerabilities to accept one kind of valid server certificate like TLS.
Here are some of the vulnerabilities you can avoid using a security header:
What is an HTTP header security test?
We offer you security testing with a straightforward approach:
- Developers get to save around 100 hours per year due to reduced test setup and remediation help right in the scan report.
- Save on average 40% on your petesting budget and enable constant security posture transparency while decreasing your exposure.
How the security header checker works?
When visiting a website, the response from the server will include HTTP response headers. These headers tell the browser how to behave while interacting with the website. Modern browsers support a variety of security headers, which are part of the HTTP response headers.
This scanner will check if the recommended security headers are set and verify securely configured headers.
Why should I test against vulnerabilities in headers?
By testing, you will be able to prevent significant attacks that will affect the reputation of your business, the credibility of your website and avoid a considerable loss of data.
Attacks are potentially expensive once they have been carried out, as fixing these problems requires a significant expenditure of money and time. Therefore, whether you are a large or small company, paying particular attention to protecting your company to save yourself from future problems is necessary.

How do I run an HTTP header scanner?
Set up and start scanning in less than 2 minutes.
- Try the fastest setup on the market. After you register, create an API or Microservices scan target, verify ownership and run a Quick or Full Scan. We scan your web application and provide a report with all vulnerabilities found.
- Excellent support team of security. We verify your HTTP test to ensure you correctly set up our vulnerability tool.
- Test all Top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities. You’ll get precisely the types of attacks you are exposed to and the risk levels they have.
What is an HTTP Host header?
The HTTP host header is a request header that defines the domain to which a client (browser) wants to connect. This header is required because it is relatively common for servers to host webpages and apps at the same IP address. They don’t always know where to send the request, though.
When the server receives a request, it examines the host header parameter to see which domain should handle it and then sends it on its way. The header may be changed while being routed to the correct domain. This is where the injection of the host header may occur.
What is a content security policy?
Content Security Policy, introduced in November 2012, adds defense against several risks like XSS, Clickjacking, Protocol Downgrading, and Frame Injection. CSP looks to be on its way to becoming the most crucial client-side security tool soon since it serves as a replacement for security headers such as X-Frame-Options and X-XSS-Protection, which aren’t implemented by default.
