Jaudu — Websocket powered CSRF protection

Jaudu is CSRF protection which uses websockets instead of cookies and session, resulting in tokens which cannot be parsed from DOM. Since many crackers and spammers use this method to bypass CSRF, Jaudu provides extra protection compared to formal CSRF protections. Jaudu also supports client side form timelocks and IP banning, which can be easily added by modifying jaudu.js javascript file.

Demo

Pre-requirements:

Redis - Jaudu uses redis to store keys

Installation:

$ npm install jaudu

Usage:

var jaudu = require('jaudu');
// Connect to redis host
jaudu.Database(<redis_host>, <redis_password>, <port>);

app.configure(function(){
// Add bodyParser middleware if you already don't have it enabled
app.use(express.bodyParser());
// Add jaudu middleware
app.use(jaudu);
});

Jaudu.js

Get your preferred version of jaudu.js from here and add it to your layouts file.

Defaults

By default Jaudu will start websocket server on port 3012.
