If the cookie isn't being presented then it is likely not in the same
This is required for cookie based solutions.

Otherwise, it could be set to secure only and ranger doesn't have SSL

1. redirecting.jsp gets around same origin issue when redirecting to
something that isn't being proxied as well
2. it has to be checked twice to ensure that no one was intercepted and
changed the redirect page to a phishing page
