Hi,

I have the below requirement could someone provide inputs as what could be done

  • I need to set the secure flag for login-token cookie. Currently "TokenUtil.createCredential()" method is having the argument to set the cookie as HttpOnly.
  • I need the sessionPersistence cookie to be HttpOnly and secure.

Please suggest a way to achieve this in CQ5 version 5.6.1

Thanks,
