 Anyone knows anything about p3p policies? (Solved)

Tomas NielsenPost date: 2007-02-07 00:07

I need to set a third party cookie for a project but Internet Explorer is will not let me read back a third party cookie. Firefox happily delivers the content accross sites but not IE.

I set the cookie using the correct domain but when I reference and object from another domain the cookie is blocked by explorer even though the request is in the right domain of the cookie.

From what I read I need a p3p (/w3c/p3p.xml) policy and I have drafted one but it does not seem to help.

Anyone has any ideas?

I'll answer my own post in case anyone needs the solution.

Apparently if I add the following http-header:


When I set the cookie. It will be available even if the page is accesed as a third party.

I'm not sure what kind of securit Microsoft think is added by that but if it floats their boat - ok with me.  :-)

Some more info in the matter:

IBM has this nice Policy editor you can play with. Makes your policy valid without hacking XML files.
