Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1788) Cookies for paths that are no prefix of the uri path are rejected (using CookieSpec Standard)
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 08:16:58 GMT
Ole SH created HTTPCLIENT-1788:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Cookies for paths that are no prefix of the uri path are rejected (using
CookieSpec Standard)
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1788
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1788
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 4.5.2
            Reporter: Ole SH
            Priority: Minor


Using CookieSpec Standard if a response to a http request to http://.../abc contains a cookie
for the path /def this cookie is rejected by httpclient. This is the correct behavior in case
of [RFC 2109|https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2109.txt] (cf. HTTPCLIENT-1043). But [RFC 6265|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265]
(as far as I know) does not state that a cookie path must be a prefix of the request uri path.
In 8.6 it is even mentioned as a "security problem" that 'an HTTP response to a request for
http://example.com/foo/bar can set a cookie with a Path attribute of "/qux"'.

I know that I can workaround my problem by using a custom cookie policy. I just wondered if
this behavior of httpclient is correct with respect to RFC 6265.
