Is there a possibility of a 'man in the middle' attack using the SSO cookie?
I have been asked if it is possible to copy the SSO cookie value from an existing authenticated browser session and then copy it into another browser session and effectively 'replay' the SSO authentication.
Is this possible?Assuming that it is not, what is the mechanism that differentiates between the browser sessions and protects against this type of attack?
