In this article, I will be talking about HTTP Security headers which can safeguard all your WebApp/API services in the Azure environment. As security plays a very important role in any LOD architecture. Most of the time developers tend to forget to apply all these minor security rules and these will be captured by either some Penetration Testing team or by LOD (Line of Defense).

HTTP security headers provide yet another layer of security by helping to mitigate attacks and security vulnerabilities by telling your browser how to behave. In this post, we will be diving more in-depth into X-Frame-Options (XFO), which is a header that helps to protect your visitors against clickjacking attacks. It is recommended that you use the X-Frame-Options header on pages that should not be allowed to render a page in a frame.
