  11. 11. What CSRF is doing on my Visualforce Page Set up ?  Demo  Stands for “Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)”.  New Level of Security for your Visualforce.  When checked, it protects against CSRF attacks by modifying the page to require a CSRF confirmation token, a random string of characters in the URL parameters. With every GET request, Visualforce checks the validity of this string of characters and doesn’t load the page unless the value found matches the value expected.  It works only for VF pages if they override standard delete link. No need to check for other VF pages.  Note : Post request already has this feature by default.
