Nginx - How to Decrypt response cookies - Newbie

append delete REDMAN

In my application (it's now available on Apknite if you're curious), I need to decrypt the response cookies where the userID exits in it and log it to each request.

Could any please share their experiences or any related blogs/articles.

I am not sure I understand the question … NoNonsenseForum for example doesn’t have user cookies at all. So I’d really need a little more information.

A cookie can contain literally any text you want. You could put the first paragraph of your favourite book in there. If your application writes something to the cookie, you are the only one who knows in what format you have written it. Which is essential when you want to read.


(Leave this as-is, it’s a trap!)

There is no need to “register”, just enter the same name + password of your choice every time.

Pro tip: Use markup to add links, quotes and more.
