OwaspHeaders.Core Injected Headers


OwaspHeaders.Core is a collection of ASP.NET Core middleware classes designed to increase web application security by adopting the recommended OWASP settings.

OwaspHeaders.Core Injected Headers
Secure Headers

The SecureHeadersMiddleware is used to inject the HTTP headers recommended by the OWASP Secure Headers project into all responses generated by the ASP.NET Core pipeline.

It is a highly configurable .NET Core middleware class which applies the headers which the consuming application requests – via a configuration file.
