Security questions about how Splunk handles session


Hi can you help with these security questions about how Splunk handles sessions? (Either On-Premise Enterprise Splunk or in Cloud)

We can't find anything about it in the Splunk Enterprise / Splunk Cloud documentation.


What session management methodology is used (e.g. non-persistent cookies, session tokens stored in the database, by URL)? (Assume non-persistent cookies)

How is the session token constructed (i.e. data elements)?

What steps have been taken to ensure that it is effectively non-forgeable?

If encryption is used, provide algorithm and key length?

Is a session table used to manage sessions?

If so, does it exist in memory on the web server, or is it stored further back in the system hierarchy?

Does it contain passwords (either plain text or encrypted)?
