Abstract

Due to the unstoppable growth of security flaws, the developers need to pay attention and be patient in the integration of security defence in the application development! In most of the cases, they are either uninformed or unqualified of implementing it which cause some huge breaks in the application! There are a lot of documentations/guidelines/tools free for use to help the developers in their work! For the last few years browsers have integrated certain security header controls to support the web application security! In the present research we will present, in our opinion, one of the most important http security response header – the one responsible for the security of the main base of a web application namely the content! Content Security Policy may help in preventing the some of the most vulnerable security attacks (XSS), but in the hand of an unexperienced developer it can breaks the entire application!
