For a pci compliance audit I have to turn off Http headers with any type of information in it it.

Has anyone done this on Netscaler 10.5?

I'm afraid it's not a good idea to remove all HTTP headers.
there are important Headers like
- Host
- Accept-Encoding
- Accept-Charset
- Accept-Language
- ...
- Status: (HTTP/1.1 302 Object Moved)  or (HTTP/1.1 200 OK )
- Content-Type:
if you remove all these headers the webpages would not load ... i think.

but there are headers you may remove or alter like "User-Agent: "  or  "Referer"
this is possible with rewrite policy at the netscaler.

you do it at the web server not the net scaler

@david johnson: NetScaler as ADC can do this work. NS can manipulate, add, change, remove every part of a webpage.
So the "remove header" job is possible, also if the webserver don#t support this.

just use rewrite module and delete_HTTP_Header 'Accept-Encoding' etc
