Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Penetration_test : Missing Content-Security-Policy

Content-Security-Policy (CSP) is an added layer of security that helps to mitigate mainly Cross-site Scripting attacks.

Use Case
The website is vulnerable to a Cross-site Scripting attack, CSP can prevent successful exploitation of that vulnerability. By not implementing CSP the website will be missing this extra layer of security. There is no direct impact of not implementing CSP on the website.

    Content-Security-Policy (CSP) header is not required by ClearQuest Web. CSP header is used to protect from Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Cross-Frame Scripting (XFS). There are many XSS and XFS protections in ClearQuest Web as HTTPOnly attribute and escaping for XSS, and X-Frame-Options header for XFS.
