HTTP-Only Cookies: Safeguarding User Data and Preventing Scripting Attacks

HTTP-only cookies are a vital component of web security that enhance user data protection. These cookies are set by web servers and can only be accessed and modified through HTTP requests, preventing any client-side scripting or malicious JavaScript from tampering with them. By restricting access to the client-side, HTTP-only cookies safeguard sensitive information, such as session tokens and authentication credentials. This protective measure mitigates the risk of cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and helps ensure that user data remains confidential and integral. As web security continues to evolve, the implementation of HTTP-only cookies remains a fundamental strategy for maintaining the integrity of online interactions and preserving user privacy.
