Talk:OWASP Periodic Table of Vulnerabilities - Cookie Theft/Session Hijacking

Jump to: navigation, search

This page suggests the following:

"Tie the session ID to the SSL session and provide configurable options for actions to take if the session ID is transmitted over a new SSL session. Expose integration points with perimeter technologies to facilitate SSL termination, renegotiation, and other transitions."

I believe that this is wrong and impractical. The risk of breaking the normal application flow is really big. SSL Session ID is undependable to be the basis for user identification.
