Express-CSRF: Cross-site request forgery protection for Express Node.js framework

This module is deprecated

Please use the csrf middleware bundled with Connect instead.

express-csrf is a simple helper for enabling cross-site request forgery protection in Express applications.

It provides a csrf token to views using dynamicHelpers, which is also saved in the session. With a middleware check, the csrf token in the request body is checked against the one in the session, to make sure that they match.

Version

0.3.4

Requirements

Installation

Recommended installation is with npm. To add express-csrf to your project, do:

npm install express-csrf

You can also install express-csrf as a git submodule:

git submodule add http://github.com/hanssonlarsson/express-csrf.git lib/support/express-csrf

Usage

var express = require('express'),
    csrf = require('express-csrf');

app = express.createServer();

app.dynamicHelpers({
    csrf: csrf.token
});

app.use(express.cookieParser());
app.use(express.bodyParser());
app.use(express.session());
app.use(csrf.check());

app.listen(3000);

In your view:

<form>
    <input type="hidden" name="csrf" value=csrf>
</form>
