Caution noteCaution

Using the HttpPostLocalhost value of this enumeration does not prevent access to the test or web service from remote computers. This value checks only the host header of the request; no other validation, authentication, or authorization checks are performed. This check mitigates only browser-based redirection attacks. Authentication and authorization are still required to restrict access to a Web service.
