Web Application Server Requirements

System requirements for installing and using the Pubcookie application server modules:

Web Application Requirements

System requirements for applications and resources protected by one of the Pubcookie application server modules:

  • HTTPS connections. Pubcookie flags all cookies "secure", so applications should be written such that browsers use SSL-protected (https) connections.
  • Session creation by HTTP GET requests. Applications should be designed such that sessions are created from a HTTP GET request. Applications should not be designed such that a user's initial request is a HTTP POST.

Login Server Requirements

System requirements for installing and using the Pubcookie login server components:

  • Unix platform
  • Web server with CGI support
  • Accurate time (NTP or similar protocol recommended)
  • Domain Name (a login server and its corresponding application servers must be registered in the same subdomain)
  • SSL server certificate

User-Agent Requirements

System requirements for end-user agents (Web browsers):

  • SSL support
  • HTTP/1.0 or higher
  • Cookies supported and enabled
  • Allows HTTP-EQUIV in META tags (recommended)
