A content security policy (CSP) can help Web application developers and server administrators better control website content and avoid vulnerabilities to cross-site scripting (XSS). In experiments with a prototype website, the authors' CSP implementation successfully mitigated all XSS attack types in four popular browsers. An XSS attack involves injecting malicious script into a trusted website that executes on a visitor?s browser without the visitor?s knowledge and thereby enables the attacker to access sensitive user data, such as session tokens and cookies stored on the browser.1 With this data, attackers can execute several malicious acts, including identity theft, keylogging, phishing, user impersonation, and webcam activation.
