CSP: sandbox

The HTTP Content-Security-Policy (CSP) sandbox directive enables a sandbox for the requested resource similar to the <iframe> sandbox attribute. It applies restrictions to a page's actions including preventing popups, preventing the execution of plugins and scripts, and enforcing a same-origin policy.

CSP version 1.1 / 2
Directive type Document directive
This directive is not supported in the <meta> element or by the Content-Security-policy-Report-Only header field.

Syntax

Content-Security-Policy: sandbox;
Content-Security-Policy: sandbox <value>;

where <value> can optionally be one of the following values:

allow-forms
Allows the embedded browsing context to submit forms. If this keyword is not used, this operation is not allowed.
allow-modals
Allows the embedded browsing context to open modal windows.
allow-orientation-lock
Allows the embedded browsing context to disable the ability to lock the screen orientation.
allow-pointer-lock
Allows the embedded browsing context to use the Pointer Lock API.
allow-popups
Allows popups (like from window.open, target="_blank", showModalDialog). If this keyword is not used, that functionality will silently fail.
allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox
Allows a sandboxed document to open new windows without forcing the sandboxing flags upon them. This will allow, for example, a third-party advertisement to be safely sandboxed without forcing the same restrictions upon a landing page.
allow-presentation
Allows embedders to have control over whether an iframe can start a presentation session.
allow-same-origin
Allows the content to be treated as being from its normal origin. If this keyword is not used, the embedded content is treated as being from a unique origin.
allow-scripts
Allows the embedded browsing context to run scripts (but not create pop-up windows). If this keyword is not used, this operation is not allowed.
allow-top-navigation
Allows the embedded browsing context to navigate (load) content to the top-level browsing context. If this keyword is not used, this operation is not allowed.

Examples

Content-Security-Policy: sandbox allow-scripts;
