[Papers] Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) Acadion Security

In the beginning of the 2000s the security community discovered a new type of attack which was first recognized as a confused deputy problem but later came to be known as a Cross Site Request Forgery attack. A CSRF, sometimes called an XSRF, vulnerability exists when a web application fails to properly verify the origin of a request. This paper will look at what CSRF is in theory, in practice and what the possible solutions are. The final chapter will discuss proposals for future solutions to CSRF.
