Content Security Policy

Hey guys,

want to share my plugin which adds Content-Security-Policy support. Content Security Policy allows us to prevent xss attacks by specifying trusted origins, so browsers won't load unexpected scripts, styles, frames, etc.

The plugin also provides assets manager class which automatically whitelists all origins of outputted scripts and styles.

Here is a simple example:


// services.php file

use Phalcon\Plugin\CSP\ContentSecurityPolicy;

// register CSP service
$di->set( 'csp', function() {
    $csp = new ContentSecurityPolicy();
    return $csp;
}, true );

// register Assets Manager class
$di->set( 'assets', function() {
    $manager = new \Phalcon\Plugin\CSP\Assets\Manager();
    return $manager;
}, true );

// public/index.php

// register application and add CSP to event manager
try {
    $csp = $di->getShared( 'csp' );

    $eventsManager = new \Phalcon\Events\Manager();
    $eventsManager->attach( 'application:beforeSendResponse', $csp );

    $application = new \Phalcon\Mvc\Application($di);
    $application->setEventsManager( $eventsManager );

    $response = $application->handle();
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();

// IndexController.php file

use Phalcon\Plugin\CSP\ContentSecurityPolicy as CSP;

class IndexController extends \Phalcon\Mvc\Controller {

    public function indexAction() {
        // whitelist Google fonts origin
        $this->csp->addPolicy( CSP::DIRECTIVE_FONT_SRC, 'https://fonts.gstatic.com' );
