Session cookie in HTTP header

I'm writing an application to authenticate a user using a challenge
response mechanism. The client and server components of the
application talk over HTTP.

I would like to use an ASP session object to hold a random number on
the server. The code to store the number is written as part of a VB
web class.

When I read the http header returned from my server, I can't see the
session cookie. Why is this? If I create a normal cookie as part of
my web class, it is returned correctly within the header.

I am using HttpQueryInfo the read the header as follows:

blnReturn = CBool(HttpQuery Info(hOpenReque st, HTTP_QUERY_RAW_ HEADERS,
ByVal strBuffer, Len(strBuffer), 0))

Thanks for your help,
Andrew

Is ASPSession State turned on? It can be disabled on the server, or in the
actual ASP page (via EnableSessionSt ate=False)

Cheers

Hi! I have a function in a lot of pages, which redirects to a new page, if a form has been submitted: if (!(defined("DEBUG_INSERT") && DEBUG_INSERT) && !(defined("DEBUG_UPDATE") && DEBUG_UPDATE) && !(defined("DEBUG_SELECT") && DEBUG_SELECT)){ if ($_POST){ $_SESSION = $_POST;

Tell me if my assertion is wrong here: The only way to prevent session hijacking is to NEVER store authentication information (such as name/password) in the session. Well, to never authenticate a user from information you got from the session. Each secure app on a site must challenge the user for name and password, each and every time the...

I had this idea about preventing session fixation, and I'm wondering what anyone else thinks about it. The idea is, essentially, don't allow session ids that YOUR PHP didn't generate (and aren't yet expired) to log in. That way if someone sticks a made-up session ID on a URL, it won't matter, unless it happens to correspond to an active...
