Default HTTP cookies, or how not to design protocols

From http://lcamtuf.blogspot.com/2010/10/...to-design.html by Google security researcher Michael Zalewski

Quote:
For as long as I remember, HTTP cookies have been vilified as a grave threat to the privacy of online browsing; wrongly so. That said, the mechanism itself is a very interesting cautionary tale for security engineers - and that will be the theme of today's feature.

Even more interesting is some of the commentary. I'm sure we could have much better technology than we have, and maybe in another 500 years we will. For the anything within a few times the length of our life times, the best you can hope for is C++0x being finalised lol.

Cookies anyone?
