Introduction

+ Script-nonce is a security feature introduced in HTML5
+ It helps prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks by providing a unique nonce value for each script on a web page.
– Browsers that support script-nonce
+ All modern browsers support script-nonce, including:
1. Chrome
2. Firefox
3. Safari
4. Edge
5. Opera
– Benefits of using script-nonce
+ Prevents cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks
+ Enhances website security
+ Provides better control over scripts on a web page
+ Allows for more secure communication between client and server
– How to implement script-nonce
1. Generate a unique nonce value for each script on the webpage
2. Add the “nonce” attribute to the script tag with the generated nonce value
3. Verify the nonce value on the server-side when processing data from the client
– Security concerns with script-nonce
+ Nonce values must be generated securely and stored securely to prevent attacks such as timing attacks or replay attacks
+ Care must be taken to ensure that the nonce value is not predictable, otherwise it may be possible for an attacker to guess the value and bypass the security mechanism.
