Yes, HTTP is stateless. What I meant is that you can: 1) authenticate and mantain server state: authenticate a user and then have a session id or 2) authenticate and do not mantain server state: you can put the necessary info in the cookie (authenticator info) and track the user this way I'm looking for approach 2, which is more scalable.
