           Summary: Domain for single sign-on cookie
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: oros@apache.org


I have the following setup:

- Apache webserver in front of Tomcat 5.5.9
- three 3rd-level domains www.mydomain.xa, search.mydomain.xa, my.mydomain.xa
- Single Sign-On valve in Tomcat is activated
- Login is handled by my.mydomain.xa and it's corresponding webapp under context /My

The problem with the SSO cookie created by Tomcat after successful login is that
the domain name stored with the cookie is my.mydomain.xa. Therefore the SSO
cookie is not sent by the user agent if a request goes to www.mydomain.xa or
search.mydomain.xa and single-sign on is not working for these subdomains.

So I need a way to tell tomcat to set '.mydomain.xa' as the domain of the SSO
cookie so it will the sent by the user agent for all subdomains. Therefore I
introduced the system property 'tomcat.sso.cookie.domain' and added a few lines
to AuthenticatorBase.java where the value of named system property is used - if
available - to set the SSO cookie's domain (see attached patch). The system
property can be set in the startup script for example.
