Subject RE: CSP ignored when using remote content
Date Fri, 22 May 2015 18:42:19 GMT
CORS does not apply for local content using file:///, hence, browser will allow all XHRs when
your origin is local. When you host content on CORS is applied. If you make
an XHR to, the browser will pre-flight a request to asking if supports
xhr access from responds using a response header - 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin'
allowing XHR to be allowed or not. You can use network inspection tools to see the request/response
to see what's happening in your case and understand the failure.

Subject: Re: CSP ignored when using remote content

Thanks for the reply. Yes, the CSP rules are defined by the page that is loaded, wherever
that is. The thing is that the behavior when loading that page from a remote server is different
from the behavior when loading the page locally, even though its the exact same page.

I have <access origin="*"> and CSP "default-src *". When i have a local content src
i can do any cross origin XHR's. Then i change content src to a server where i serve the platform/www
folder of my cordova project, and suddently the same XHR's are blocked. So the behaviour is
different just from one varialbe changning; content src.
