ICAP

SecureTransport implements the ICAP functionality adhering to the published ICAP standard, therefore it is expected that SecureTransport will work with any server complying to the finalized ICAP standard (RFC 3507).

However, based on the experience from validating of the ICAP servers, connecting to each additional server supporting ICAP to ST Server was associated often with particularities and idiosyncrasies in requests/responses for ICAP scan, which could result in behavior change and/or failures in the processing.

Therefore, in future cases of utilization of other ICAP enabled Servers, Axway will evaluate such incidents (if any) and, whenever possible, will address them in the SecureTransport.

ICAP implementation to ensure file content validation operation continuity.

Incidents requiring major changes will be evaluated individually.
