Stripe Webhook Secret



  • Documentation:
  • Summary: Stripe offers payment processing software and application programming interfaces (APIs) for e-commerce websites and mobile application. It can be integrated with webhooks to communicate with external applications. Events sent by Stripe via a webhook are signed to avoid a replay attack. The key used to sign these events should remain secret. This detector aims at catching such keys.

Revoke the secret#

Webhooks secrets can be issued and revoked from the dashboard dedicated page.'

Check for suspicious activity#

In addition to signing webhook events, Stripe sends events only from a given list of IPs. Checking the origin of webhook messages can help to detect suspicious activities.
