This post is divided into several sections each covering a different security threat and how to properly defend your site against it.

Practical PHP/Twig implementation for HTTP/2 Server Push

HTTP/2 offers many advantages over legacy protocols like HTTP/1.1. One of those features is Server Push, a way to push assets to the client before the server supplies the requested HTML document. This allows for faster load-times for critical assets. In this example I will be using the Caddy webserver, however modern Apache 2 and nginx versions also support Sever Push and HTTP/2.
