title: "Pre-shared keys"

This Worker provides a way to quickly block access to content of your choosing, if the requester does not supply a header with a correct pre-shared key.

While this simple implementation is helpful, it is not meant to replace more secure scripts such as signed requests using the WebCrypto API.

addEventListener('fetch', event => {
async function handleRequest(request) {
  // Example test: curl --header "X-Custom-PSK: mypresharedkey"

  var presharedAuthHeaderKey = 'X-Custom-PSK';
  var presharedAuthHeaderValue = 'mypresharedkey';

  let psk = request.headers.get(presharedAuthHeaderKey);

  if (psk === presharedAuthHeaderValue) {
    console.log('Correct preshared header key supplied. Forwarding request.');
    return fetch(request);
  } else {
    console.log('Incorrect preshared header key supplied. Rejecting request.')
    return new Response('Sorry, this page is not available.',
        { status: 403, statusText: 'Forbidden' });
