auth0_state Session The primary reason for using the state parameter is to mitigate CSRF attacks by using a unique and non-guessable value associated with each authentication request about to be initiated. That value allows you to prevent the attack by confirming that the value coming from the response matches the one you sent.
auth0_nonce Session The nonce is used by the AS to prevent replay attacks. It tracks nonces and will reject a request that tries to reuse a nonce.
