On the other hand, you can allow to make ObSSOCookie accessible to client side scripts by defining explicitly ssoCookie:disablehttponly in the authentication scheme.
I don’t really see any valid use of it other than you are opening a channel for misusers.
In addition, you can also use the SSL approach which makes the cookie available only in SSL environments and traversing from SSL to non-SSL applications does not Single Sign-On using Oracle Access Manager. To use this approach, you have to use ssoCookie: secure.
