Li, W., Mitchell, C. J. & Chen, T. ORCID: 0000-0001-8037-1685 (2018). Mitigating CSRF attacks on OAuth 2.0 Systems. 2018 16th Annual Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust (PST), pp. 280-284. ISSN 1712-364X doi: 10.1109/PST.2018.8514180

Abstract

Many millions of users routinely use Google, Facebook and Microsoft to log in to websites supporting OAuth 2.0 and/or OpenID Connect. The security of OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect is therefore of critical importance. Unfortunately, as previous studies have shown, real-world implementations of both schemes are often vulnerable to attack, and in particular to crosssite request forgery (CSRF) attacks. In this paper we propose a new and practical technique which can be used to mitigate CSRF attacks against both OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect. Index Terms-OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, CSRF.
