I have been told to forward a cookie from a web app to an authentication service. I can't see the cookie on the file generated when exporting the browser cookies, so when I asked about it, the client told me this is a session cookie. I have searched for information about how to read session cookies, but I find it confusing.

What I have tried:

As far as I understand, ASP.net keeps these cookies in the session dictionary (c# How to get session from asp.net session cookie) But when I explore the class Session, I can't see any dictionary. Besides that, I understand that to read a cookie, you first have to add it, however this cookie is a corporative cookie that I don't manage. Would it be automatically added to my web app session?

Thanks!

You know that Silverlight is dead for a few years right?

Microsoft Silverlight: what happened exactly? Still available?[^]

I don't know how you access cookies in Silverlight, but you can only access cookies that are for the domain your site is running under. So if your site is abc.com then you can't read cookies for xyz.com.

By session cookie what he means is a cookie that isn't permanent, so when the webapp is closed (tab or browser is closed) the cookie is gone. That differs from a persistent cookie which is still there even if the browser is closed (think "remember me" functionality). If you are trying to read cookies from the file system then browsers tend to store session cookies in memory, they don't write them to the cookies folder. Only persistent cookies tend to be written to the file system.
