8.3. Cookie Domain
8.3.1. About the Cookie Domain
The cookie domain refers to the set of hosts able to read a cookie from the client browser which is accessing your application. It is a configuration mechanism to minimize the risk of third parties accessing information your application stores in browser cookies.
The default value for the cookie domain is
/. This means that only the issuing host can read the contents of a cookie. Setting a specific cookie domain makes the contents of the cookie available to a wider range of hosts. To set the cookie domain, refer to Section 8.3.2, “Configure the Cookie Domain”.
