Content Security Policies

Webpack is capable of adding a nonce to all scripts that it loads. To activate this feature, set a __webpack_nonce__ variable and include it in your entry script. A unique hash-based nonce will then be generated and provided for each unique page view (this is why __webpack_nonce__ is specified in the entry file and not in the configuration). Please note that the __webpack_nonce__ should always be a base64-encoded string.


In the entry file:

// ...
__webpack_nonce__ = 'c29tZSBjb29sIHN0cmluZyB3aWxsIHBvcCB1cCAxMjM=';
// ...

Enabling CSP

Please note that CSPs are not enabled by default. A corresponding header Content-Security-Policy or meta tag <meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" ...> needs to be sent with the document to instruct the browser to enable the CSP. Here's an example of what a CSP header including a CDN white-listed URL might look like:

Content-Security-Policy: default-src 'self'; script-src 'self';

For more information on CSP and nonce attribute, please refer to Further Reading section at the bottom of this page.

Trusted Types

Webpack is also capable of using Trusted Types to load dynamically constructed scripts, to adhere to CSP require-trusted-types-for directive restrictions. See output.trustedTypes configuration option.
