This middleware helps web developers fight CSRF attacks. Bear in mind, by solely using this middleware, we can't guarantee your app will be free from CSRF attacks. Refer to CSRF Prevention Cheat Sheet and pillarjs/understanding-csrf for more details.

Install

pnpm i malibu

Usage

Like all CSRF plugins, it depends on either Cookie Parser or Session middleware.

import { App } from '@tinyhttp/app'
import { cookieParser } from '@tinyhttp/cookie-parser'
import { csrf } from 'malibu'

const app = new App()

const csrfProtection = csrf()
app.use(cookieParser())

// this lets you acquire CSRF token on response body
// you also have CSRF token on your cookies as _csrf
app.get('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ token: req.csrfToken() })
})

// you may only access this if you give a previously acquired CSRF token
app.post('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ message: 'hello' })
})

For signed cookies:

const app = new App()

const csrfProtection = csrf({ cookie: { signed: true } })
app.use(cookieParser('secret key'))

// this lets you acquire CSRF token on the response body
// you also have a CSRF token on your cookies as _csrf
app.get('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ token: req.csrfToken() })
})

// you may only access this if you give a previously acquired CSRF token
app.post('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ message: 'hello' })
})

With express-session:

import { App } from '@tinyhttp/app'
import session from 'express-session'
import { csrf } from 'malibu'

const app = new App()

const csrfProtection = csrf({ middleware: 'session' })
app.use(session({ secret: 'secret key', resave: false, saveUninitialized: false }))

// this lets you acquire CSRF token on response body
app.get('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ token: req.csrfToken() })
})

// you may only access this if you give a previously acquired CSRF token
app.post('/', csrfProtection, (req, res) => {
  res.status(200).json({ message: 'hello' })
})

Why "malibu"?

It's one variation of a longboard used in surfing. It's a 60's style longboard, made with heavy glass, long parallel 50/50 rails, and a deep single fin. Made especially for trimming, (walking the board) and for noseriding. Not to mention, it looks cool.
