Simon Holywell:
Improve PHP session cookie security
May 14, 2013 @ 14:55:37

Simon Holywell has a new post talking about cookie security in PHP, focusing on some of the PHP configuration settings that can help.

The security of session handling in PHP can easily be enhanced through the use of a few configuration settings and the addition of an SSL certificate. Whilst this topic has been covered numerous times before it still bears mentioning with a large number of PHP sites and servers having not implemented these features.

He talks about the httponly flag when setting the cookie/in the configuration, the "use only cookies" for sessions and forcing them to be "secure only".
