Forcing 'HttpOnly' flag on Zabbix cookies by a webserver directive is not supported.


  1. When HttpOnly is 'true' the cookie will be made accessible only through the HTTP protocol. This means that the cookie won't be accessible by scripting languages, such as JavaScript. This setting can effectively help to reduce identity theft through XSS attacks (although it is not supported by all browsers).↩︎

  2. Secure indicates that the cookie should only be transmitted over a secure HTTPS connection from the client. When set to 'true', the cookie will only be set if a secure connection exists.↩︎
