Security

Splunk and CSP functions

Communicator

I'm running nginx with the below security config.

add_header X-Frame-Options "SAMEORIGIN" always;
add_header X-XSS-Protection "1; mode=block" always;
add_header X-Content-Type-Options "nosniff" always;
add_header Referrer-Policy "no-referrer-when-downgrade" always;
add_header Content-Security-Policy "default-src 'self' http: https: data: blob: 'unsafe-inline'" always;
add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains; preload" always;

When this file is enabled within nginx Splunk web will throw

This browser is not supported by
Splunk. Please refer to the list of
Supported Browsers.

Console shows
EvalError: call to Function() blocked by CSP common.js:1:30458
Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at eval (“default-src”).

Mozilla seems to say that the function call is banned ... via https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Archive/B2G_OS/Firefox_OS_apps/Building_apps_for_Firefox_OS...

The function constructor is banned
You may not use the Function() constructor. Using it will throw a security error.

Sooo anyone run into this before ? I'm running Splunk Ent 7.2.3

Chrome seems to debug this a bit differently

common.js:1 Uncaught EvalError: Refused to evaluate a string as JavaScript because 'unsafe-eval' is not an allowed source of script in the following Content Security Policy directive: "default-src 'self' http: https: data: blob: 'unsafe-inline'".
