    <input type="hidden" name="_token" values="[% c.req.param('_token') %]"/>

DESCRIPTION ^

This controller enables to enforce a single transaction across multiple forms. Using a token, you can prevent duplicate submits and protect your app from CSRF atacks.

This module REQUIRES Catalyst::Plugin::Session to store server side token.

ATTRIBUTES ^

CreateToken

Creates a new token and puts it into request and session. You can return content with request token which should be posted to server.

ValidateToken

After CreateToken, clients will post token request, so you need to validate whether it is correct or not.

The ValidateToken attribute wil make your action validate the request token by comparing it to the session token which is created by the CreateToken attribute.

If the token is valid, the server-side token will be expired. Use is_valid_token() to check wheter the token in this request was valid or not.

RemoveToken

Removes the token from the session. The request token will no longer be valid.

METHODS ^

All methods must be passed the request context as their first parameter.

token
create_token
remove_token
validate_token

Return whether token is valid or not. This will work correctly only after ValidateToken.

is_valid_token
