Jan 28, 2020 — Google changes for "SameSite" cookies

We’ve enhanced cookie-based Token Authentication functionality to maintain compatibility with Google’s updates to their SameSite Cookie attribute with Chrome version 80 and later.

With this change, ​Akamai​ explicitly sets the SameSite attribute for token cookies to use the values “None” and “Secure.” This allows the applicable cookie token to be sent to ​Akamai​ without playback interruption when using Chrome. For non-secure (HTTP) traffic, there's no change to how the session token is set in a cookie.
