frameguard3.1.0 • Public • Published
X-Frame-Options HTTP header restricts who can put your site in a frame which can help mitigate things like clickjacking attacks. It has three modes:
ALLOW-FROM, defaulting to
SAMEORIGIN. If your app does not need to be framed (and most don't) you can use
DENY. If your site can be in frames from the same origin, you can set it to
SAMEORIGIN. If you want to allow it from a specific URL, you can allow that with
ALLOW-FROM and a URL.
const frameguard =// Don't allow me to be in ANY frames:app// Only let me be framed by people of the same origin:appapp // defaults to sameorigin// Allow from a specific host:app
This has pretty good (but not 100%) browser support: IE8+, Opera 10.50+, Safari 4+, Chrome 4.1+, and Firefox 3.6.9+. The
ALLOW-FROM header option is not supported in Chrome or Safari. Those browsers will ignore the entire header, and the frame will be displayed, so you probably want to avoid using that option.
