Laravel 7.12 Released image

The Laravel team released v7.12.0 with a new TrustHosts middleware, along with the latest updates to the 7.x branch.

TrustHosts Middleware

Taylor Otwell contributed a new TrustHosts middleware, configuring a whitelist of trusted hosts in the Illuminate request object. By default, the HTTP Foundation configuration is an empty array, so this middleware will help you lock down the hosts (via regex) your application will recognize.

The setting out of the box for Laravel is all subdomains on the configured app.url value. As of Laravel 7, this middleware is opt-in, so you can either uncomment it in a new app or add the following once you upgrade to v7.12:

protected $middleware = [
\App\Http\Middleware\TrustHosts::class,
];

The bulk of the logic comes from the base middleware class in the framework, and then the Laravel app has an accompanying TrustHosts middleware that extends the framework. You are free to customize and override the base middleware host whitelist logic.

Skip Middleware in Resource Routes

Sébastien Nikolaou contributed the ability to skip middleware from resource routes. Here’s an example from Pull Request #32891:

Route::middleware(['auth', 'verified'])->group(function () {
Route::resource('photo', 'PhotosController')->withoutMiddleware('verified');
});
