------------------------------------

             Summary: Add XFS Filter for UIs to Hadoop Common
                 Key: HADOOP-13008
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13008
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: security
            Reporter: Larry McCay
            Assignee: Larry McCay
             Fix For: 2.8.0


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.
