Commit the work, I'll ditch what I have and work on finishing it up so
that it can be used as a core service. This means populating the
SkeletonKeyToken with origins and adding the apppropriate decorators and
OPTIONS support in the application adapter.
BTW, it doesn't look like you are setting and checking the STATE cookie
in keycloak.js. But I'm not exactly sure yet how you're using
keycloak.js yet in the application.

Then verify when the actual header comes in. I was actually thinking about doing returning a 400/403 or something like that if the Origin does match one specified on the client. The first thing I was thinking about adding to use this was a method to allow retrieving the user profile for the currently logged in user. Then I was going to talk to you about what we could do to add it to SaasService.
