Issue

Nessus or other security scanners report System Manager is not enforcing HSTS.

The remote web server is not enforcing HSTS.

"The remote HTTPS server is not enforcing HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS).
HSTS is an optional response header that can be configured on the server to instruct
the browser to only communicate via HTTPS. The lack of HSTS allows downgrade attacks,
SSL-stripping man-in-the-middle attacks, and weakens cookie-hijacking protections."
