Re: the "back" button on the weblogout page

I also see an Apache cosign directive which looks like it might also be

If this is set to the URL of the application's front page, will the
behavior be to bring a user who clicks "Back," as in the above scenario, to
that front page and obviate the need for the application to catch the
"missing session" case?
This will work in the way you ask if your application destroyed
the cosign service cookie it was using before sending the user
on to the weblogin server logout page. When the user clicks
"back", mod_cosign on your server will see that while the user
is authenticated, that they do not have a service cookie for
the server and after doing the cosign REGISTER will then send
them off to the CosignSiteEntry.
I like Paul's solution, too, though.
