We have splunk 6.2.1 running in our environment. As part of security review procedures, any dashboards we create need to be run through an automated security review product like hailstorm. One of the attributes it is checking for is that session cookies are secured & httponly. I do see that etc/system/default/web.conf has tools.sessions.httponly and tools.sessions.secure set to True. I assume this should have secured all session cookies, but the review tool is pointing out session cookies are not secured. Excerpt of the review report generated below

1. Cookie does not have secure attribute.
Is there any other setting which needs to be enabled to make session cookies secure & httponly?
