CWE-446 安全特性的UI矛盾

UI Discrepancy for Security Feature

结构: Simple

Abstraction: Base

状态: Incomplete

被利用可能性: unkown


The user interface does not correctly enable or configure a security feature, but the interface provides feedback that causes the user to believe that the feature is in a secure state.


When the user interface does not properly reflect what the user asks of it, then it can lead the user into a false sense of security. For example, the user might check a box to enable a security option to enable encrypted communications, but the software does not actually enable the encryption. Alternately, the user might provide a "restrict ALL'" access control rule, but the software only implements "restrict SOME".

Relationship This is often resultant. Maintenance This node is likely a loose composite that could be broken down into the different types of errors that cause the user interface to have incorrect interactions with the underlying security feature.
