If core REST services are not needed, there should be an option to disable these services.
If the core services are necessary to the operation of the Domino http server, an option to suppress the exact version number should be available:
Accurately discovering the type of web server that an application runs on can enable attackers to determine if the application is vulnerable to attack. In particular, servers running older versions of software without up-to-date security patches can be susceptible to known version-specific exploits, making it easy for an attacker to exploit those vulnerabilities.
Suggested Threat-Specific Countermeasures:
Remove or mask system information leakages (e.g. HTTP headers, error messages, URL paths, and file extensions).
Thomas, for internet facing servers would don't like to give out version numbers, which you easily can now by just going ot <url>/api.
The issue found is when http is enabled and REST is disabled then making the nonce call could prompt for authentication. A workaround can be to create a website redirection for the api url or when the REST API is disabled that none of the services are available.
Please explain why this should be done
