    # Protecting controller actions from CSRF attacks by ensuring that all forms are coming from the current web application, not a
    # forged link from another site, is done by embedding a token based on the session (which an attacker wouldn't know) in all
    # forms and Ajax requests generated by Rails and then verifying the authenticity of that token in the controller.  Only
    # HTML/JavaScript requests are checked, so this will not protect your XML API (presumably you'll have a different authentication
    # scheme there anyway).  Also, GET requests are not protected as these should be idempotent anyway.
    # This is turned on with the <tt>protect_from_forgery</tt> method, which will check the token and raise an
    # ActionController::InvalidAuthenticityToken if it doesn't match what was expected. You can customize the error message in
    # production by editing public/422.html.  A call to this method in ApplicationController is generated by default in post-Rails 2.0
    # applications.
    # The token parameter is named <tt>authenticity_token</tt> by default. If you are generating an HTML form manually (without the
    # use of Rails' <tt>form_for</tt>, <tt>form_tag</tt> or other helpers), you have to include a hidden field named like that and
    # set its value to what is returned by <tt>form_authenticity_token</tt>. Same applies to manually constructed Ajax requests. To
    # make the token available through a global variable to scripts on a certain page, you could add something like this to a view:
    #   <%= javascript_tag "window._token = '#{form_authenticity_token}'" %>
    # Request forgery protection is disabled by default in test environment.  If you are upgrading from Rails 1.x, add this to
    # config/environments/test.rb:
    #   # Disable request forgery protection in test environment
    #   config.action_controller.allow_forgery_protection = false

    # Keep in mind, this is NOT a silver-bullet, plug 'n' play, warm security blanket for your rails application.
    # There are a few guidelines you should follow:
    # * Keep your GET requests safe and idempotent.  More reading material:

    # * Make sure the session cookies that Rails creates are non-persistent.  Check in Firefox and look for "Expires: at end of session"

      # Turn on request forgery protection. Bear in mind that only non-GET, HTML/JavaScript requests are checked.
      # Example:
      #   class FooController < ApplicationController
      #     # uses the cookie session store (then you don't need a separate :secret)
      #     protect_from_forgery :except => :index
      #     # uses one of the other session stores that uses a session_id value.
      #     protect_from_forgery :secret => 'my-little-pony', :except => :index
      #     # you can disable csrf protection on controller-by-controller basis:
      #     skip_before_filter :verify_authenticity_token
      #   end
      # Valid Options:
      # * <tt>:only/:except</tt> - Passed to the <tt>before_filter</tt> call.  Set which actions are verified.
      # * <tt>:secret</tt> - Custom salt used to generate the <tt>form_authenticity_token</tt>.
      #   Leave this off if you are using the cookie session store.
      # * <tt>:digest</tt> - Message digest used for hashing.  Defaults to 'SHA1'.
