Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12691) Add CSRF Filter for REST APIs to Hadoop Common
Date Sat, 16 Jan 2016 14:57:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12691?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15103214#comment-15103214

Larry McCay commented on HADOOP-12691:
--------------------------------------

[~sekikn] - can you elaborate, please?
The location within hadoop-common/src/test/java/org/apache/hadoop/security/http/ was chosen
to align with the CrossOriginFilter location as they are very similar in functionality and
intent.

Are you speaking of some other type of location?

> CSRF prevention for REST APIs can be provided through a common servlet filter. This filter
would check for the existence of an expected (configurable) HTTP header - such as X-XSRF-Header.
> The fact that CSRF attacks are entirely browser based means that the above approach can
ensure that requests are coming from either: applications served by the same origin as the
REST API or that there is explicit policy configuration that allows the setting of a header
on XmlHttpRequest from another origin.
