Moving OpenSSO Session Cookie Hijacking Information

In reorganizing and rewriting the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Administration Guide, I thought the chapter on session cookie hijacking was in the wrong place. The Administration Guide is a guide for administering and configuring OpenSSO Enterprise using the console and the command line. The information in the session cookie hijacking chapter, with its emphasis on a technical overview, security issues and configuration seemed more inline with a task that would be done post OpenSSO installation and deployment. Thus the chapter was moved, intact, to the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Installation and Configuration Guide.

So, if looking for information on session cookie hijacking, check out Chapter 19, Taking Precautions Against Session-Cookie Hijacking in an OpenSSO Enterprise Deployment in the aforementioned ICG.

And speaking of moving, here's Kate Bush, live at the Hammersmith Odeon, with the first cut from The Kick Inside, Moving.

Move over, Madonna. THIS was the first time I had seen anyone use the telephone operator microphone in a live performance.

Which OpenSSO Version Is Running (Up That Hill)?

Want to confirm (or even find out) what version of OpenSSO you installed many moons ago and are still running? Put the following URL in your browser:

http://host-machine-name.domain:port/opensso/SMSServlet?method=version

When I ran it I received the following output in the browser window because I installed a post-OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 build:

(2008-November-22 01:14)

Someone running OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 would see:

Enterprise 8.0 Build 6(2008-October-31 09:07)

And once you know what version is running, keep going up that hill with Kate Bush.

Or with Placebo who recorded the more recent cover of Running Up That Hill.
