Hi @nkululeko,

you can enable HSTS in the latest version of Arcsight ESM 7.4 by adding
"hsts.enabled=true"

to your server.properties files under (if default) /opt/arcsight/manager/config

If you search previous versions of the Arcsight ESM Administrators guide you should be able to find if earlier versions support it.

Also be aware that, HSTS will not work with Self-signed certificates, and is primarily aimed at environments that have CA issued certificates, not the default ESM generated self signed ones.
