What is the RequestVerificationToken that I see in my request Cookie on my webpage in ASP .Net MVC?
Posted on 2014-02-28
I'm relatively new to figuring out the messaging and hand shaking that takes place between by client (web page) and the back end in an ASP .Net MVC based application.
These might seem like simple or off base questions.
I have 3 questions:
1) I'm examining some of the network requests between my page and back end and I'm looking at the connect$transport. Is this something that's initiated from my page or received by it?
2) Examining that request in detail, I see a number of request Cookies:
- xxxAuth (which is generated by our application)
If so how do I do that?
3) Exactly what is the __RequestVerification_Token?
In looking at my webpage, I notice that there's a hidden input value where this value
has been stuffed in.
