CSP (Content Security Policy) is mainly used to define which resources page (JS / CSS / FONT / IFRAME / XHR / …) can be loaded, can effectively play the role of a lot of security!

CSP can:

  • Prevent operators hijacking (using script-src limit specified domain JS code to run, to avoid operators insert the code)
  • Prevent XSS attacks (XSS attack will be a lot of references to other sites in the site execution of malicious code)
  • Prevent clickjacking
  • Prevent Android WebView UXSS (nesting other sites is prohibited iFrame content, etc.)

CSP report

Formally joined the production environment can be collected only for a period of time before the rules do not match the log, observe the period of time no problem and then on the production environment. Or just as a monitoring abnormal behavior can also be used!

Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only: script-src ‘self’; report-uri http://kalilinux.co/csp-report.html

The loading strategy defined after adding the above code will still execute, but will POST a Content-Type: JSON request to csp-report.html, in the following format:

“violated-directive”:”script-src ‘self'”
“original-policy”:”script-src ‘self’;
