This bundle provides the advanced form token implementation for Symfony 2.8 and 3.0+.


  • JavaScript version of the core form token
  • JavaScript code obfuscation (requires external libraries)


From the command line run

$ composer require secit-pl/advanced-form-token-bundle

Update your AppKernel by adding the bundle declaration

class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = [
            new SecIT\AdvancedFormTokenBundle\AdvancedFormTokenBundle(),



By default this bundle is disabled for all forms. You can enable it globally or for a single form.

Simgle form usage

To enable the JavaScript token just add the javascript_csrf_protection to the form defaults.


namespace App\Form;

use Symfony\Component\Form\AbstractType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\FormBuilderInterface;
use Symfony\Component\OptionsResolver\OptionsResolver;
use Symfony\Component\Form\Extension\Core\Type as FormField;
use Symfony\Component\Validator\Constraints;

class ContactType extends AbstractType
    public function configureOptions(OptionsResolver $resolver)
            'javascript_csrf_protection' => true, // enable the JavaScript form token

    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)

Here is the list of possible options used by JavaScript form token. Most of them works the same like the native Symfony form token options.

javascript_csrf_protection - default: false - is JavaScript form token enabled?

javascript_csrf_field_name - deafult: _jstoken - the token form field name

javascript_csrf_message - The error message displayed if the form token is invalid

javascript_csrf_javascript_obfuscator' - deafult: null - The obfuscator class used to obfuscate generated token JavaScript code

Global configuration


        enabled: ~ # default false - is JavaScript form token enabled for all forms?
        field_name: ~ # deafult: _jstoken - the token form field name for all forms
        javascript_obfuscator: ~ # deafult: null - The obfuscator class used to obfuscate generated token JavaScript code for all forms

JavaScript obfuscator

By default generated JavaScript code is not obfuscated. To enable it you need to define the obfuscator class which should be used for this operation. This class should implements the SecIT\AdvancedFormTokenBundle\JavaScript\ObfuscatorInterface.

Current version provides one ready to use obfuscator SecIT\AdvancedFormTokenBundle\JavaScript\TholuPhpPackerObfuscator which requires that you have already installed the This package in not installed by default due to the fact that it uses the LGPL-2.1 license thich is not fully compatible with MIT license used by this bundle.

To enable the obfuscator for a single form set the javascript_csrf_javascript_obfuscator option to the SecIT\AdvancedFormTokenBundle\JavaScript\TholuPhpPackerObfuscator value.

In most cases you'd like to have obfuscator enabled for all JavaScript token forms so the best way will be to set it up globally in your config.yml:

        javascript_obfuscator: SecIT\AdvancedFormTokenBundle\JavaScript\TholuPhpPackerObfuscator

From now TholuPhpPackerObfuscator will randomly obfuscate the JavaScript code generated for each form token.
