It's a simple honeypot implementation for ASP.NET Core to detect bot posts.


How to use it

  1. Register honeypot service.
 public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
  1. Add tag helper to _ViewImports.cshtml
@addTagHelper *, AspNetCore.Honeypot
  1. Place any honeypot tag to a form with a custom name (e.g. "name", "email" or "city") and use your css class to hide it.
<honeypot-field name="email" class="hide" />
<honeypot-field name="name" class="hide" />
<honeypot-field name="city" class="hide" />
  1. Place one time-based honeypot tag.
<honeypot-time />
  1. Bot detection handling

4.1 Place the honeypot attribute to your action method for automatic bot detection handling.

  public async Task<IActionResult> PostRegister(RegisterViewModel registerData)

4.2 Use the extension method to handle bot detection by yourself.

  public async Task<IActionResult> PostRegister(RegisterViewModel registerData)
      if (HttpContext.IsHoneypotTrapped())
          ModelState.AddModelError("", "bot detection");


          return View("Register", new RegisterViewModel());
