.NET 6 Sizzling Reload and “Refused to hook up with ws: as a result of it violates the Content material Safety Coverage directive” as a result of Internet Sockets



For those who’re enthusiastic about Sizzling Reload like me AND you additionally need an “A” grade from SecurityHeaders.com (actually, go do this now) then you’ll be taught in a short time about Content material-Safety-Coverage headers. You must spend a while studying and chances are you’ll find yourself with a considerably refined checklist of allowed issues, scripts, stylesheets, and so forth.

In DasBlog Core (the cross platform weblog engine that runs this weblog) Mark Downie makes these configurable and makes use of the NWebSpec ASP.NET Middleware library so as to add the wanted headers.

if (SecurityStyleSources != null && SecurityScriptSources != null && DefaultSources != null)
{
app.UseCsp(choices => choices
.DefaultSources(s => s.Self()
.CustomSources(DefaultSources)
)
.StyleSources(s => s.Self()
.CustomSources(SecurityStyleSources)
.UnsafeInline()
)
.ScriptSources(s => s.Self()
.CustomSources(SecurityScriptSources)
.UnsafeInline()
.UnsafeEval()
)
);
}

Every of these variables comes out of a config file. Sure, it could be extra safety in the event that they got here out of a vault or had been even arduous coded.

DasBlog is a fairly large and funky app and we seen instantly upon Mark upgrading it to .NET 6 that we had been unable to make use of Sizzling Reload (by way of dotnet watch or from VS 2022). We will complain about it, or we are able to study the way it works and why it isn’t working for us!

Keep in mind: Nothing in your pc is hidden from you.

Beginning with a easy “View Supply” we are able to see a JavaScript embrace on the very backside that’s undoubtedly not mine!

<script src="http://feeds.hanselman.com/_framework/aspnetcore-browser-refresh.js"></script>

Okay, this is smart as we all know not solely does HotReload assist C# (code behinds) but additionally Markup by way of Razor Pages and altering CSS! It might undoubtedly want to speak “again house” to the runner which is both “dotnet watch” or VS2022.

If I modify the ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT to “Manufacturing” (both by way of launch.json, launchsettings, or an setting variable like this, I can see that further HotReload helper script is not there:

C:githubwshotreloadtest>dotnet run --environment="Manufacturing"
Constructing...
data: Microsoft.Internet hosting.Lifetime[14]
Now listening on: https://localhost:7216
data: Microsoft.Internet hosting.Lifetime[14]
Now listening on: http://localhost:5216

Keep in mind: You by no means wish to use dotnet run in manufacturing! It is an SDK constructing command! You will wish to use dotnet exec your.dll, dotnet your.dll, or better of all, in .NET 6 simply name the EXE straight! .binDebugnet6.0wshotreloadtest.exe in my instance. Why? dotnet run will all the time assume it is in Improvement (you actually inform it to revive, construct, and exec in a single run command) in case you run it. You will be aware that working the precise EXE is all the time WAY quicker as effectively! Do not ship your .NET SDK to your webserver and do not recompile the entire thing on startup in manufacturing!

We will see that that aspnnetcore-browser-refresh.js is the consumer aspect of Improvement-time HotReload. Taking a look at our browser console we see :

Refused to Connect because it violates a CSP Directive

Refused to hook up with 'wss://localhost:62486/' 
as a result of it violates the next Content material Safety Coverage
directive: "default-src 'self'".
Observe that 'connect-src' was not explicitly set,
so 'default-src' is used as a fallback.

That is lots to consider. I began out my ASP.NET Internet App’s center ware saying it was OK to speak “again to myself” however nowhere else.

app.UseCsp(choices => choices.DefaultSources(s => s.Self())); 

Hm, self appears cheap, why cannot the browser join BACK to the dotnet run’ed Kestrel Internet Server? It is all localhost, proper? Nicely, particularly it is http://localhost not ws://localhost, and even wss://localhost (that further s is for safe) so I have to explicitly enable ws: or wss: or each, however solely in Improvement.

Perhaps like this (once more, I am utilizing NWebSpec, however these are simply HTTP Headers so you may actually simply add them if you need, hardcoded.)

app.UseCsp(choices => choices.DefaultSources(s => s.Self())
.ConnectSources(s => s.CustomSources("wss://localhost:62895")));

However port numbers change, proper? Let’s just do wss:, solely in Improvement. Now, if I am utilizing each CSPs and WebSockets (ws:, wss:) in Manufacturing, I am going to must be intentional about this.

What is the ethical?

For those who begin utilizing CSP Headers to tighten issues up, be aware and conscious of the headers you want for conveniences like Sizzling Reload in Improvement versus no matter issues chances are you’ll want in Manufacturing.

Hope this helps prevent a while!
