About Secure Profile

In ColdFusion 10, the “Secure Profile” feature was added. It can be enabled at the time of installation and helps configure some of the important settings for securing server. It is highly recommended to choose this option for production servers. Complete details of Secure Profile can be found here.

Determining the status of Secure Profile

Once you enable this option from Installer, there are multiple ways to determine the status of “Secure Profile”.

  1.  In <ColdFusion-home>/lib/neo-security.xml, “secureprofile.enabled” flag value indicates if secure profile is enabled or not. Note: Changing value of this flag post installation will not re-configure other secure profile affected settings.
  2. Alternatively you can use Admin Extension created by Raymond Camden. Details can be found here.
  3. You can also check in web.xml file under runtime/conf. There is a section (“<!—secure profile enable start” ) that will be commented out if it is not turned on.







We announced our plans on a full-fledged ColdFusion conference this year. Here is a follow up survey to capture your inputs and feedback. As always your participation in the survey is highly appreciated. This is also your chance to let Adobe know how you would like to see the new conference on ColdFusion shape up.

Here's the survey link

As you are also aware, due to MAX’s focus on Creative Cloud tools and services, there are no ColdFusion sessions at Adobe MAX this year. The unconferences too are going to be dedicated to those that support the Creative Cloud offering. So it is unlikely that the ColdFusion unconference will happen at MAX this year. But the good news is that we do have an exclusive ColdFusion conference planned. Please participate in the survey and give us your feedback.
