Security advisory

We now validate login CSRF tokens with HMAC. The new HmacCsrfToken strategy generates an HMAC CSRF token that expires after a configurable interval. The previous RandomCsrfToken strategy is now deprecated.

Logging into Magnolia after leaving the login page idle for 10-20 minutes returns a 403 Forbidden error due to an expired CSRF token. To resolve this issue, reload the login page.
