Form Fields

Content-Security-Policy (CSP)

These options control the Content-Security-Policy.

  • Content Security Policy (CSP). (Enabled/Disabled) Whether to Enable or Disable the Content-Security-Policy.
  • Mode. (Custome/Detect/Automatic) Configures the mode the plugin generates the Content-Security-Policy on. The Custom mode allows manual configuration. The Detect mode enables the report collection and the automatic mode uses the collected reports to generate the Content-Security-Policy.
  • Report-Only. (Enabled/Disabled) Use the header 'Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only' instead of 'Content-Security-Policy'.
  • Nonce. (Enabled/Disabled) Enable the whitelist for specific inline scripts using a cryptographic nonce (number used once) for all scripts and styles using the Joomla API. Specifying a nonce makes a modern browser ignore 'unsafe-inline' which should still be set for older browsers without nonce support.
  • Script hashes. (Enabled/Disabled) Enable the optional hash based whitelist inline scripts using a cryptographic hash for all scripts using the Joomla API. Specifying hashes makes a modern browser ignore 'unsafe-inline' which should still be set for older browsers without hash support.
  • Style hashes. (Enabled/Disabled) Enable the optional hash based whitelist inline styles using a cryptographic hash for all styles using the Joomla API. Specifying hashes makes a modern browser ignore 'unsafe-inline' which should still be set for older browsers without hash support.
  • frame-ancestors 'self'. (Enabled/Disabled)Enable the CSP clickjacking protection frame-ancestors and only allow the origin 'self'. Please use the form below to allow origins other than 'self'.
  • Add Directive. (Subform) You can use this subform to add as many entries as you want for the Content-Security-Policy by setting the Policy Directive, Value and Client.
