    I don't think there are any risks from reading cookies, but my project manager does. That's why I have asked the question on here :-)

    Hi Bruno, No, my question is very different because I'm talking about reading cookies on inbound traffic (to load balance to back-end web servers based on that, rather than by IP address - which doesn't work if the user is behind a NAT). An F5 BIGIP server, or SAP Web Dispatcher server could terminate the HTTPS connection, read the cookie and re-encrypt the HTTPS connection. Thanks.
