If you want your application to only be available via HTTPS connections you can
use Cake\Http\Middleware\HttpsEnforcerMiddleware; // Always raise an exception and never redirect. $https = new HttpsEnforcerMiddleware([ 'redirect' => false, ]); // Send a 302 status code when redirecting $https = new HttpsEnforcerMiddleware([ 'redirect' => true, 'statusCode' => 302, ]); // Send additional headers in the redirect response. $https = new HttpsEnforcerMiddleware([ 'headers' => ['X-Https-Upgrade' => 1], ]); // Disable HTTPs enforcement when ``debug`` is on. $https = new HttpsEnforcerMiddleware([ 'disableOnDebug' => true, ]);
If a non-HTTP request is received that does not use GET a
BadRequestException will be raised.
When your application requires SSL it is a good idea to set the
Strict-Transport-Security header. This header value is cached in the
browser, and informs browsers that they should always connect with HTTPS connections.
You can configure this header with the
$https = new HttpsEnforcerMiddleware([ 'hsts' => [ // How long the header value should be cached for. 'maxAge' => 60 * 60 * 24 * 365, // should this policy apply to subdomains? 'includeSubDomains' => true, // Should the header value be cacheable in google's HSTS preload // service? While not part of the spec it is widely implemented. 'preload' => true, ], ]);
New in version 4.4.0: The
hsts option was added.
