CSRF (cross-site request forgery) attacks can be disastrous for a website. In this course, we will learn exactly what they are and take a back-end (examples with Node.js) and front-end approach against them. Browsers have multiple security mechanisms to block certain attacks, and any web developer should have an idea of what these mechanisms are and how to use them.
