I have recently started to develop an application which uses (JPA / Hibernate , Spring Core 4.1.8 , Spring Security 4.0.2 and ZK 7.0.3 for UI).

After successfully configure and implement a login screen that works with basic Spring Security and build some ZK screens I have found that if I leave csrf checking enabled on Spring Security Configuration ZK screens did not work (I am getting http error 403 csrf token not found).

I understand that ZK implements XSS and CSRF checks on its own.

So can I leave csrf checking disabled in Spring Security Configuration and know that ZK handles the matter inside its framework?


If I want to use in my application another technology that needs csrf checking (lets say a simple JSP) then what should I do? I thought that then I should enable csrf in Spring Security and use its logic in the JSP obviously but then I will have problems with the ZK Ajax requests?

So my actual question is: Is there something I am missing that integrates ZK's CSRF implementation with Spring Security CSRF checking?

Thank you very much for your time.
