This module provides a middleware that implements protection
against request forgeries from other sites.

def _get_failure_view():
    Returns the view to be used for CSRF rejections
    return get_callable(settings.CSRF_FAILURE_VIEW)

    return get_random_string(CSRF_KEY_LENGTH)

def get_token(request):
    Returns the CSRF token required for a POST form. The token is an
    alphanumeric value. A new token is created if one is not already set.

    A side effect of calling this function is to make the csrf_protect
    decorator and the CsrfViewMiddleware add a CSRF cookie and a 'Vary: Cookie'
    header to the outgoing response.  For this reason, you may need to use this
    function lazily, as is done by the csrf context processor.

        request.META["CSRF_COOKIE"] = _get_new_csrf_key()
    request.META["CSRF_COOKIE_USED"] = True
    return request.META["CSRF_COOKIE"]

def rotate_token(request):
    Changes the CSRF token in use for a request - should be done on login
    for security purposes.

        "CSRF_COOKIE": _get_new_csrf_key(),

    if len(token) > CSRF_KEY_LENGTH:

    if token == "":
        # In case the cookie has been truncated to nothing at some point.
        return _get_new_csrf_key()
    return token
