Cookies

HttpOnly means that the cookie can only be read by the server, and not by JavaScript on the client. This can mitigate XSS (cross-site scripting) attacks.

Secure means that the cookie will only be sent over a secure channel (HTTPS). This can mitigate MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks.

SameSite can be used to instruct the browser to only send the cookie when the request is originating from the same site. This can mitigate CSRF (cross-site request forgery) attacks.

What this tool checks (and doesn't check)

This tool attempts to simulate what happens when a user visits a specified page with a typical browser. The browser has no addons/extensions installed, and Do Not Track (DNT) is not enabled, since this is the default setting in most browsers.

External files such as images, scripts and CSS are loaded, but the tool performs no interactions with the page — no links are clicked, no forms are submitted.

Disclaimer: The results presented here might not be 100% correct. Bugs happen. This tool is meant to be used by site owners as a starting point for improvements, not as a rigorous analysis.
