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 user accesses it (not just once and then store it in the session). If a secure app is multi-page,...

Hi All, Just wondering how you go about changing the value of a session cookie via javascript? I have a PHP page that sets a session cookie when it first loads. I'd like to be able to change the value of that session cookie in response to a button click in a form, without resubmitting the page. For some reason, the following doesn't seem to work:

Is there a way to get a user control to remember its state across pages? I have a standard page layout I use with a header and footer as user controls. Each page uses the same layout by means of copy paste (I hear this will improve in ASP.Net 2 via master pages). When I navigate from one page to the next the header and footer user controls lose their state because they are effectively different instances of the user control. Is there...

*Please* help --- I'm tearing my hair out. I want to use sessionstate in a webservice, accessed from a client, written in script (JScript, InfoPath). I have written my webservice (C# .NET). I have marked the method(s) with EnableSession=true. I have read everything there is to read! I am told that to reuse session, my client needs to receive a cookie in the header from the webservice and then pass this back in all future calls. ...

I have an ASP page that is using an XMLHTTP object to request various pages from my server. I keep a single session throughout the XMLHTTP requests by bassing the ASPSESSIONID cookie through the XMLHTTP object. However, when the page requested through the XML object makes a <%Response.Redirect()%> call, a new session is created each time. Is this a flaw in the XMLHTTP Object? How can I force the session to remain the same after a...

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 session (guessing a user password is probably easier). Is this already standard practice, new, or is...

I run a Joomla website and am familiar with php in some but not all aspects. Currently I am trying to find some solutions related to session handling. Am I correct in saying that "login" is kept in sessions? I can see active sessions in my mysql database, but is that the only place this information is stored? Sessions and cookies I know are related also, but how specifically (session info stored in cookies?)? Right now, when users...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
