This document specifies a way to create a stateful session with
Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests and responses.  It
describes three new headers, Cookie, Cookie2, and Set-Cookie2, which
carry state information between participating origin servers and user
agents.  The method described here differs from Netscape's Cookie
proposal, but it can interoperate with HTTP/1.0 user agents
that use Netscape's method.  

This document reflects implementation experience with RFC 2109 and
obsoletes it.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
