>From RFC 2965:
OPTIONAL. The value of the Max-Age attribute is delta-seconds, the lifetime
of the cookie in seconds, a decimal non-negative integer. To handle cached
cookies correctly, a client SHOULD calculate the age of the cookie according
to the age calculation rules in the HTTP/1.1 specification [RFC2616]. When
the age is greater than delta-seconds seconds, the client SHOULD discard the
cookie. A value of zero means the cookie SHOULD be discarded immediately.

Presumably from when the client receives and stores the cookie.

I don't understand that the HTTPcookie age is in seconds. Seconds from

I haven't found any similar question in  the list archives ? or in the
site ?
If it's possible please give me an exemple of cookie aging.

Thanks !
