    Provides mechanisms to protect against cross-site request forgery
    attacks. This is accomplished by using a token that is not stored in a
    session, but required to make changes to the system.

    This can be accomplished by emitting a hidden field in a form, or
    sending a separate header (X-CSRFToken) when forms are submitted (e.g Ajax).

    This technique is based on the protection mechanism in the Django
    project, detailed at and thanks to

    Token can be expired after X seconds of inactivity (timeout) independent of the session.
