Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Administration Reference

Persistent Cookie Mode

This option determines whether users can restart the browser and still return to their authenticated session. User sessions can be retained by enabling Enable Persistent Cookie Mode. When Enable Persistent Cookie Mode is enabled, a user session does not expire until its persistent cookie expires, or the user explicitly logs out. The expiration time is specified in Persistent Cookie Maximum Time. The default value is that Persistent Cookie Mode is not enabled and the authentication service uses only memory cookies.

Note –

A persistent cookie must be explicitly requested by the client using the iPSPCookie=yes parameter in the login URL.
