An attacker uses server functionality to access or modify resources in a Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) attack. The attacker goes after an application that allows users to import data from URLs or read data from URLs.

Whitelisting the hostname (DNS name) or IP address that your application needs to access is the most reliable approach to eliminate server-side request forgery (SSRF). If you can't utilise a whitelist and must rely on a blacklist, it's critical to properly validate user input.

The target application may have the ability to import data from a URL, publish data to a URL, or read data from a URL that has been tampered with. The attacker alters the calls to this feature by using a different URL or changing the way URLs are constructed (path traversal etc.).

The user is the target of a CSRF attack. While it was successful in exploiting holes in the website's design, the goal was to perform legitimate but unauthorised operations on the user's web-based service account. SSRF, on the other hand, is primarily designed to attack the server.

Server side request forgery is a type of attack that exploits the trust relationship between the browser and the server. The attacker submits a form to the server, but instead of submitting it to the intended destination, they submit it to another website.
