New middleware: PadForSecurity

Reported by Gaius Centus Novus | June 3rd, 2009 @ 05:05 PM

I've added a PadForSecurity middleware. The use case is for developers who are generating content that will eventually be encrypted before being sent out. Some encryption algorithms are weakened by any static subset of the plaintext appearing at a block boundary. It pads spaces (configurable) onto the beginning or end of responses that won't be corrupted by the padding.

    Just as I was typing this up I realized a problem: XML doesn't want extra spaces at the beginning. Any suggestions on a clean way to put them right before <body or <html without binding too closely to the MIME type?
