Towards stateless, client-side driven cross-site request forgery protection for web applications

Sebastian Lekies , Walter Tighzert and Martin Johns


Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) is one of the dominant threats in the Web application landscape.

The key functionality of the approach, which is based on the double-submit technique, is purely implemented on the client-side. This way full coverage of client-side generation of HTTP requests is provided.
