Content Security Policies are another tool we should have in our security tool-belt to help protect users of our sites. In this session you’ll learn what they are, why they’re needed, how they work and the limitations on what they can & cannot do to protect users.

You’ll see a demo of attacks a CSP will block, you’ll see a site broken by a CSP, show what the different CSP directives & options will do and be introduced to some of the tools available to help with implementing a CSP on your sites!

Before/After the Meetup:

A few members will likely be in The Font ( beforehand for a drink and a bite to eat, and afterwards there'll be a group heading to Soar Point (or somewhere else nearby) for a social catch up.


Deacon Street car park is where people usually park, the postcode is LE2 7DP. (There's also spots on the street directly outside the gateway building but they're usually all taken up!) Deacon Street is available from 6pm onwards as we have permission from the University to use the car park. If the barrier is down, ring the buzzer and explain that you are attending the PHP East Midlands monthly meetup.
