FlatPress Protect


Protect your blog with additional fetures in the HTTP response header

  • Content Security Policy is an effective measure to protect your site from XSS attacks. By whitelisting sources for approved content, you can prevent the browser from loading malicious content.
  • Permissions Policy is a new header that allows a site to control which features and APIs can be used in the browser.
  • HTTP Strict Transport Security is an excellent feature to support on your site and strengthens your implementation of TLS by getting the User Agent to enforce the use of HTTPS.
  • The X-Download-Options response header instructs the browser not to open the file directly but to offer it for download first. This mitigates some potential Social Engineering attacks.
  • HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS for short) is a security mechanism for HTTPS connections that protects against both connection encryption downgrade attack and session hijacking.
  • The referrer policy directive determines whether, and if so which, referrer information for requests triggered by the current web page is sent by the web browser in HTTP requests.

Important note: HTTPS should have been mandatory long ago!

The CSP guidelines enforce the use of HTTPS. We therefore recommend that you encrypt the HTTP data stream. To do this, the web server requires an SSL certificate. These are usually subject to a fee, but since Mozilla launched the “Let's encrypt!” initiative, such certificates are also available free of charge, depending on the hosting partner.
