Hi Yong, you posts are always helpful in learning java technology. If possible could you please share some sample programs on LDAP+Spring+RESTful web services. Demonstrating authentication of username and password, providing authorization, and some curd on LDAP.

Hi,

i have implemented sprig security in my app using this example and login works fine however I couldn’t either fetch or submit data to and from the backend.In both the cases I get 403 with following message…

Invalid CSRF Token ‘null’ was found on the request parameter ‘csrf’ or header ‘X-CSRF-TOKEN’.Access to the specified resource has been forbidden

I tried after adding below code snippets one after another but error remain same.
1.

2.

Any suggestion would be greately appreciated.

thanks

[…] You could use a security framework, like Shiro or Spring Security, this is the recommended way, also you could build your own security system, but it's on your own […]
