SESCOOKIE cookie — Name of session cookie

SESCOOKIE is a parameter on JANUS DEFINE, which defines and sets characteristics of a Janus port.

Indicates the name of a cookie that will be used to maintain logical sessions that will be used to perform trusted logins for Janus port users who have just logged in through typical HTTP challenge-response mechanisms or through a $Sir_Login issued during NEWSESCMD processing. This feature reduces the overhead of NEWSESCMD processing by limiting it to logical session establishment time, and it eliminates some of the idiosyncrasies of HTTP challenge-response authentication associated with password changes, whether end-user or system initiated.

SESCOOKIE cookies are cryptographically designed to be virtually impossible to "fake".

If both SESCOOKIE and SSLSES are specified, the session associated with the SESCOOKIE will be used in preference to the session associated with the SSL session, though these should almost always be the same.

SESCOOKIE is valid only for WEBSERV ports.
