This plugin is for IIR .NET 6 and higher sites to add additional security to it.


You can easily add in the Program.cs file a few lines to quickly add additional security to your sites. (Upgraded projects might still have a Startup.cs)

We will want to try and make cookies as secure as possible with the following settings

// Sets the default cookie policy. You may need to apply additional policies for authentication.
builder.Services.Configure<CookiePolicyOptions>(options =>
    // This lambda determines whether user consent for non-essential cookies is needed for a given request.
    options.CheckConsentNeeded = context => true;
    options.MinimumSameSitePolicy = SameSiteMode.Strict;
    // Handling SameSite cookie according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/security/samesite?view=aspnetcore-3.1
    options.HttpOnly = HttpOnlyPolicy.Always;
    options.Secure = CookieSecurePolicy.Always;

// Configure HSTS to a year out and include pre-load and subdomains
builder.Services.AddHsts(o =>
    o.Preload = true;
    o.IncludeSubDomains = true;
    o.MaxAge = TimeSpan.FromDays(365);

Add the following line to automatically add required security settings

app.UseCookiePolicy(); // This is to apply from the above section

Make sure that app.UseHsts(); is set in this method (usually is by default)

Create Web.Config

You will need to create a web.config file in the root of the website and add the following XML to it. This will help remove some of the header values we don't want to include

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <remove name="X-Powered-By"/>
        <remove name="Server" />
        <remove name="X-AspNet-Version" />
        <remove name="X-AspNetMvc-Version" />
      <requestFiltering removeServerHeader="true" />

View Imports

In the _Viewimports.cshtml file you will want to add the following line to the file

@addTagHelper *, Joonasw.AspNetCore.SecurityHeaders


Most of this logic was taken from a library that has not been updated in a few years. We only inlcuded the tools that are still common for today. You can read more about the package at https://github.com/juunas11/aspnetcore-security-headers
