HTTP Security libraries allow you to set HTTP headers on your API requests that help make your app more secure. These headers include things like CORS and authentication tokens. You can also use them to detect things like CSRF attacks. The Helmet module provides a handy utility that allows you to protect your Express apps from many common security problems.
