             Summary: Token-based Remember Me Base64 encoding problem in Internet Explorer
                 Key: JBSEAM-4906
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBSEAM-4906
             Project: Seam 2
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2.2.Final
            Reporter: Tayfun Gokmen Halac

Seam Remember Me component produces Base64 encoded token values for auto-login. But, Internet Explorer cookies (which are Netspace based version 0 cookies) do not support some characters in Base64 encoded cookies. Application Server converts a seam authcookie to version 1 cookie if it contains unssupported character such as "=", and therefore max-age property is not recognized by IE. For this reason, authentication cookies cannot be persisted in IE and are deleted at the end of the session. As a result, remember me is usually not working on IE.
