Fetch Metadata Interceptor
An interceptor that implements Fetch Metadata on incoming requests used to protect against CSRF, XSSI, and cross-origin information leaks. Uses a default Resource Isolation Policy to programmatically reject cross-origin requests.
A Resource Isolation Policy is a strong defense in-depth mechanism that prevents the resources on a server from being requested by external websites. This policy can be enabled either for all endpoints of the application and endpoints that are meant to be loaded in a cross-site context can be exempted from the policy.
The browser provides information about the context of an HTTP request in a set of
Sec-Fetch-* headers. This allows the server processing the request to make decisions on whether the request should be accepted or rejected based on the preferred resource isolation policy. Struts provides a default Resource Isolation Policy that rejects cross-origin requests that aren’t top level navigations.
Sec-Fetch-Site == 'cross-site' AND (Sec-Fetch-Mode != 'navigate'/'nested-navigate' OR method NOT IN [GET, HEAD])
Refer to Implementing a Resource Isolation Policy for further information on implementing effective Resource Isolation Policies. Fetch Metadata is supported in all major browsers
exemptedPaths- Set of opt out endpoints that are meant to serve cross-site traffic. Paths should contain leading slashes and must be relative. This field is empty by default.
