that's not necessary.

When you configure the SingleSignOnValve within Tomcat, all webapps
(contexts) are sharing the same session-data.
However, this valve supports cookies only.

>From the docs:

The Single Sign On feature utilizes HTTP cookies to transmit a token
that associates each request with the saved user identity, so it can
only be utilized in client environments that support cookies.
