IP cookie binding in Dataverse

IP based cookie binding is a security technique that helps protect Dataverse against cookie replay attacks. A cookie replay attack occurs when an attacker intercepts a valid cookie and exploits it to impersonate the user who originally created the cookie. IP based cookie binding addresses this threat by evaluating the IP address associated with the cookie in the request. If the IP address in the request does not match the IP address of the device where the cookie was originally created, the Dataverse API will automatically reject the cookie and prompt the user with a message indicating that their session may have been compromised. This ensures that only the legitimate and authorized user is able to access the protected resources and prevents attackers from using stolen cookies to gain unauthorized access. IP based cookie binding is a real-time solution, which means it can detect and prevent cookie replay attacks as soon as they occur, providing an added layer of security for the customer’s organization.
