Hi guys,

We have just now started a new project with Spring and Hibernate. We should provide them the admin panel and REST API's. I recently implemented Spring security in the project. Since CSRF is enabled by default, when API is hit it asks for CSRF token. Incase I decide to remove the login form and CSRF from spring security, my admin panel will get affected. What do I do in this case? Also I read about cookie based authentication for REST API's but the articles were not clear. Can some one guide me through this?

Here is the code snippet I using for spring security.

Why would you want to remove the CSRF token?

Cookie based authentication pretty much just works by storing the currently logged-in user in a signed cookie. When the browser sends such a cookie to the server, it says "Hey, I previously logged in as this user, so don't ask me for a password again". To prevent a client from forging the user name, the cookie is signed so it can be verified by the server.
Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
