A common Web security problem is session stealing. This happens when an attacker manages to get a copy of your session cookie, generally while the cookie is being transmitted over the network. This can only happen when the data is being sent in clear-text; that is, the cookie is not encrypted.
EPM System web application sets a cookie to track the session. While setting a cookie, especially a session cookie, the server can set the secure flag, which forces the browser to send the cookie over a secure channel. This behavior reduces the risk of session hijacking.
Secure cookies are available only if EPM System products are deployed in an SSL-enabled environment.
