HTMLElement.nonce

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The nonce property of the HTMLElement interface returns the cryptographic number used once that is used by Content Security Policy to determine whether a given fetch will be allowed to proceed.

In later implementations, elements that have a nonce attribute only expose it to scripts (and not to side-channels like CSS attribute selectors). 

Syntax

var nonce = HTMLElement.nonce
HTMLElement.nonce = nonce

Value

A cryptographic nonce.
