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
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.
