Abstract

One of the most often talked about problems in web security is "cookies". Web cookies are a method of associating requests with "sessions" that may have been authenticated somehow. Cookies are a form of bearer token that leave much to be desired. This document proposes a session "continuation" protocol for HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP).
