Per-Form CSRF tokens

Per-Form CSRF tokens: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
Per-Form CSRF tokens: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Per-form CSRF tokens are an important addition to Ruby on Rails 5 because of the additional Cross-site Request Forgery Protection that they offer. They prevent a particular technique of form hijacking where a stolen CSRF token could still permit fake forms to be sent. Per-form tokens are only valid for the current form action which means they can only be used to send back a single form. Kevin shows how to enable per-form CSRF tokens, which is turned on by default in new applications.
