Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

The QWebSocketCorsAuthenticator class is used in the originAuthenticationRequired() signal. The class provides a way to pass back the required information to the QWebSocketServer . It provides applications with fine-grained control over which origin URLs are allowed and which aren’t. By default, every origin is accepted. To get fine-grained control, an application connects the originAuthenticationRequired() signal to a slot. When the origin ( origin() ) is accepted, it calls setAllowed (true)

Note

Checking on the origin does not make much sense when the server is accessed via a non-browser client, as that client can set whatever origin header it likes. In case of a browser client, the server SHOULD check the validity of the origin.
