Actually that's not true.  We should be clear that this is *not* the same
thing as ViewStateUserKey (which is not enabled by default).
EnableEventValidation does provide postback input related protections, but
ViewStateUserKey actually ties it to the user session.  Without
ViewStateUserKey, you will notice the __EVENTVALIDATION nonce will be the
same for any two users.  With ViewStateUserKey, the value will be unique per
user.

The EnableEventValidation page directive (enabled by default since .Net
2.0) applies a nonce value for form validation and is also a strong control
to prevent CSRF attacks.

Nice article.

For the ASP.NET crowd out there, the will be even more simple, one
line of
code.  Set the ViewStateUserKey property in your base class or page
and
the
unique token protections (similar to CSRF_Guard) will be provided for
you.

This protection mechanism has been available for many years, since the 
Framework 1.1

I briefly covered how simple it is to prevent CSRF attacks. Hope that
you
find it useful.
