SessionCSRF class

Provides an API for cross site request forgery protection.

// output somewhere in form markup when rendering a form
echo $session->CSRF->renderInput();
// when processing form (POST request), check to see if token is present
if($session->CSRF->hasValidToken()) {
  // form submission is valid
  // okay to process
} else {
  // form submission is NOT valid
  throw new WireException('CSRF check failed!');
}
// this alternative to hasValidToken() throws WireCSRFException when invalid
$session->CSRF->validate();

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
