Definition:

protect_from_forgery - A feature in Rails that protects against Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. This feature makes all generated forms have a hidden id field. This id field must match the stored id or the form submission is not accepted. This prevents malicious forms on other sites or forms inserted with XSS from submitting to the Rails application.
