Auth with headers

Allow or deny a request based on a known pre-shared key in a header. This is not meant to replace the WebCrypto API.

  if (psk === PRESHARED_AUTH_HEADER_VALUE) {    // Correct preshared header key supplied. Fetch request from origin.    return fetch(request)  }
  // Incorrect key supplied. Reject the request.  return new Response("Sorry, you have supplied an invalid key.", {    status: 403,  })}
