This Symfony2 bundle provides route annotation and options to secure routes against CSRF attacks and without using forms.



Use Composer to install the bundle:

composer require fantoine/csrf-route-bundle '~1.0@dev'

or add the following line in your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "fantoine/csrf-route-bundle": "~1.0@dev",

Then, register the bundle in your application's kernel class:

    // app/AppKernel.php
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new Fantoine\CsrfRouteBundle\FantoineCsrfRouteBundle(),
            // ...


Configuration reference :

    enabled: true
    field_name: _token
  • enabled : Enable or disable the token verification (default: true);
  • field_name : The name of the field appended to route URLs (default: _token).


The only thing to do to use this package is to add some configurations to the routes you want to protect.

The bundle adds a router which can append a token query parameter on route generation and a controller listener validate which validates token on called routes.

Options configuration

The bundle checks controller calls and search for a csrf_token option. The available parameters for this options are:

  • token : The token parameter name (by default _token)
  • intention : The token intention. Different intentions generate different tokens (by default null which results to the route name).
  • methods : The HTTP method(s) when the CSRF token is validated (by default GET).
# app/config/routing.yml
        - csrf_token: 
            - token: '_token'
            - intention: null
            - methods: [GET]

You can also only specify the csrf_token option to true to use default parameters.

# app/config/routing.yml
    options: { csrf_token: true }

Annotation configuration

If you use annotations to configurate your routes, then the easiest way it to add an additionnal annotation to the sensible actions:

// src Acme\DemoBundle\Controller\DefaultController.php

// ...
use Fantoine\CsrfRouteBundle\Annotation\CsrfToken;
// ...

class DefaultController {
    // ...
     * ...
     * @CsrfToken
    public function sensibleAction()
    // ...

Twig integration

As the bundle provides a custom router, CSRF tokens are automatically appended to url generated with path(...) and url(...) on Twig templates.

Routers compatibility

This bundle overrides the default Symfony router. In case you use other bundles which does the same thing (for instance JMSI18nRoutingBundle), the router integrated on this bundle works automatically as an adapter on previously configurated router. The only thing to take care is to register the FantoineCsrfRouterBundle after the bundle which overrides the router.
