Struct rocket::http::CookieJar[][src]

pub struct CookieJar<'a> { /* fields omitted */ }
Expand description

Collection of one or more HTTP cookies.

CookieJar allows for retrieval of cookies from an incoming request. It also tracks modifications (additions and removals) and marks them as pending.

Pending

Changes to a CookieJar are not visible via the normal get() and get_private() methods. This is typically the desired effect as a CookieJar always reflects the cookies in an incoming request. In cases where this is not desired, the get_pending() and get_private_pending() methods are available, which always return the latest changes.

use rocket::http::{CookieJar, Cookie};

#[get("/message")]
fn message(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    jar.add(Cookie::new("message", "hello!"));
    jar.add(Cookie::new("other", "bye!"));

    // `get()` does not reflect changes.
    assert!(jar.get("other").is_none());

    // `get_pending()` does.
    let other_pending = jar.get_pending("other");
    let message_pending = jar.get_pending("message");
    assert_eq!(other_pending.as_ref().map(|c| c.value()), Some("bye!"));
    assert_eq!(message_pending.as_ref().map(|c| c.value()), Some("hello!"));
}

Usage

A type of &CookieJar can be retrieved via its FromRequest implementation as a request guard or via the Request::cookies() method. Individual cookies can be retrieved via the get() and get_private() methods. Pending changes can be observed via the get_pending() and get_private_pending() methods. Cookies can be added or removed via the add(), add_private(), remove(), and remove_private() methods.

Examples

The following example shows &CookieJar being used as a request guard in a handler to retrieve the value of a “message” cookie.

use rocket::http::CookieJar;

#[get("/message")]
fn message<'a>(jar: &'a CookieJar<'_>) -> Option<&'a str> {
    jar.get("message").map(|cookie| cookie.value())
}

The following snippet shows &CookieJar being retrieved from a Request in a custom request guard implementation for User. A private cookie containing a user’s ID is retrieved. If the cookie exists and the ID parses as an integer, a User structure is validated. Otherwise, the guard forwards.

use rocket::http::Status;
use rocket::outcome::IntoOutcome;
use rocket::request::{self, Request, FromRequest};

// In practice, we'd probably fetch the user from the database.
struct User(usize);

#[rocket::async_trait]
impl<'r> FromRequest<'r> for User {
    type Error = std::convert::Infallible;

    async fn from_request(request: &'r Request<'_>) -> request::Outcome<Self, Self::Error> {
        request.cookies()
            .get_private("user_id")
            .and_then(|c| c.value().parse().ok())
            .map(|id| User(id))
            .or_forward(())
    }
}

Private Cookies

Private cookies are just like regular cookies except that they are encrypted using authenticated encryption, a form of encryption which simultaneously provides confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity. This means that private cookies cannot be inspected, tampered with, or manufactured by clients. If you prefer, you can think of private cookies as being signed and encrypted.

Private cookies can be retrieved, added, and removed from a CookieJar collection via the get_private(), add_private(), and remove_private() methods.

Encryption Key

To encrypt private cookies, Rocket uses the 256-bit key specified in the secret_key configuration parameter. If one is not specified, Rocket will automatically generate a fresh key. Note, however, that a private cookie can only be decrypted with the same key with which it was encrypted. As such, it is important to set a secret_key configuration parameter when using private cookies so that cookies decrypt properly after an application restart. Rocket will emit a warning if an application is run in production mode without a configured secret_key.

Generating a string suitable for use as a secret_key configuration value is usually done through tools like openssl. Using openssl, for instance, a 256-bit base64 key can be generated with the command openssl rand -base64 32.

Implementations

impl<'a> CookieJar<'a>[src]

pub fn get(&self, name: &str) -> Option<&Cookie<'static>>[src]

Returns a reference to the original Cookie inside this container with the name name. If no such cookie exists, returns None.

Note: This method does not obverse changes made via additions and removals to the cookie jar. To observe those changes, use CookieJar::get_pending().

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    let cookie = jar.get("name");
}

pub fn get_private(&self, name: &str) -> Option<Cookie<'static>>[src]

This is supported on crate feature secrets only.

Retrives the original Cookie inside this collection with the name name and authenticates and decrypts the cookie’s value. If the cookie cannot be found, or the cookie fails to authenticate or decrypt, None is returned.

Note: This method does not obverse changes made via additions and removals to the cookie jar. To observe those changes, use CookieJar::get_private_pending().

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    let cookie = jar.get_private("name");
}

pub fn get_pending(&self, name: &str) -> Option<Cookie<'static>>[src]

Returns a reference to the original or pending Cookie inside this container with the name name. If no such cookie exists, returns None.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    let pending_cookie = jar.get_pending("name");
}

pub fn get_private_pending(&self, name: &str) -> Option<Cookie<'static>>[src]

This is supported on crate feature secrets only.

Retrives the original or pending Cookie inside this collection with the name name and authenticates and decrypts the cookie’s value. If the cookie cannot be found, or the cookie fails to authenticate or decrypt, None is returned.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    let pending_cookie = jar.get_private_pending("name");
}

pub fn add(&self, cookie: Cookie<'static>)[src]

Adds cookie to this collection.

Unless a value is set for the given property, the following defaults are set on cookie before being added to self:

  • path: "/"
  • SameSite: Strict

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, SameSite, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    jar.add(Cookie::new("first", "value"));

    let cookie = Cookie::build("other", "value_two")
        .path("/")
        .secure(true)
        .same_site(SameSite::Lax);

    jar.add(cookie.finish());
}

pub fn add_private(&self, cookie: Cookie<'static>)[src]

This is supported on crate feature secrets only.

Adds cookie to the collection. The cookie’s value is encrypted with authenticated encryption assuring confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity. The cookie can later be retrieved using get_private and removed using remove_private.

Unless a value is set for the given property, the following defaults are set on cookie before being added to self:

  • path: "/"
  • SameSite: Strict
  • HttpOnly: true
  • Expires: 1 week from now

These defaults ensure maximum usability and security. For additional security, you may wish to set the secure flag.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    jar.add_private(Cookie::new("name", "value"));
}

pub fn remove(&self, cookie: Cookie<'static>)[src]

Removes cookie from this collection and generates a “removal” cookies to send to the client on response. For correctness, cookie must contain the same path and domain as the cookie that was initially set. Failure to provide the initial path and domain will result in cookies that are not properly removed. For convenience, if a path is not set on cookie, the "/" path will automatically be set.

A “removal” cookie is a cookie that has the same name as the original cookie but has an empty value, a max-age of 0, and an expiration date far in the past.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    jar.remove(Cookie::named("name"));
}

pub fn remove_private(&self, cookie: Cookie<'static>)[src]

This is supported on crate feature secrets only.

Removes the private cookie from the collection.

For correct removal, the passed in cookie must contain the same path and domain as the cookie that was initially set. If a path is not set on cookie, the "/" path will automatically be set.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    jar.remove_private(Cookie::named("name"));
}

pub fn iter(&self) -> impl Iterator<Item = &Cookie<'static>>[src]

Returns an iterator over all of the original cookies present in this collection.

Note: This method does not obverse changes made via additions and removals to the cookie jar.

Example

use rocket::http::{Cookie, CookieJar};

#[get("/")]
fn handler(jar: &CookieJar<'_>) {
    for c in jar.iter() {
        println!("Name: {:?}, Value: {:?}", c.name(), c.value());
    }
}
