Clickjacking Protection Middleware.

This module provides a middleware that implements protection against a
malicious site loading resources from your site in a hidden frame.

from django.conf import settings
from django.utils.deprecation import MiddlewareMixin

[docs]class XFrameOptionsMiddleware(MiddlewareMixin):
    Set the X-Frame-Options HTTP header in HTTP responses.

    Do not set the header if it's already set or if the response contains
    a xframe_options_exempt value set to True.

    By default, set the X-Frame-Options header to 'SAMEORIGIN', meaning the
    response can only be loaded on a frame within the same site. To prevent the
    response from being loaded in a frame in any site, set X_FRAME_OPTIONS in
    your project's Django settings to 'DENY'.
    def process_response(self, request, response):
        # Don't set it if it's already in the response
        if response.get('X-Frame-Options') is not None:
            return response

        # Don't set it if they used @xframe_options_exempt
        if getattr(response, 'xframe_options_exempt', False):
            return response

        response['X-Frame-Options'] = self.get_xframe_options_value(request,
        return response

    def get_xframe_options_value(self, request, response):
        Get the value to set for the X_FRAME_OPTIONS header. Use the value from
        the X_FRAME_OPTIONS setting, or 'SAMEORIGIN' if not set.

        This method can be overridden if needed, allowing it to vary based on
        the request or response.
        return getattr(settings, 'X_FRAME_OPTIONS', 'SAMEORIGIN').upper()
