Warning: this announcement may require intervention on your part!

Dear INRIA Forge users,

For security reasons, the use of secure cookies will be generalized for all the websites of projects hosted by Inria forge from June 1st 2019 (for more technical details, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_cookie).

Since the scope of secure cookies is, by definition, limited to "safe" transmission channels, websites that currently transfer cookies via the HTTP protocol (i.e. without encryption) may malfunction from the specified date without your intervention.

As an example, one of the consequences of this measure will be the impossibility, from this date, for websites in HTTP, to provide authentication and sessions management on certain online applications (* dokuwiki *, among others).

* In conclusion *: In order to avoid this type of inconvenience we invite you, if your site uses cookies, to make it accessible in HTTPS before the indicated date according to one of the modalities suggested here: http: //siteadmin.gforge.inria .com / FAQ.html # Web_https

The INRIA Forge Team.
