Description

It would be great if it would be possible to do something like proxy_cookie_secure on to force cookie secure flag to be set to on, no matter what the underlying app sends. So if a reverse proxy uses SSL it could force all cookies to be SSL-only.

Similarly proxy_cookie_httponly on could be useful as well, but that might break some apps.

Wrong component, sorry. :-(
