Actually Larry, $_SESSION data is stored on the server. $_COOKIE data is
stored on the end user's computer. a $_SESSION variable is going to be
your best bet for doing this. If you are still paranoid about the user
profile and password being stored temporarily out in your IFS, you could
always encrypt the data before storing it and then decrypt the data when
retrieving it.

In fact, search the archives, I believe Kevin Schroeder posted an example
of doing just this kind of encryption of $_SESSION variables a while back.

[WEB400] persistent sign on for Zend Server

Using Zend Server, I would like to present a sign-on screen where the user

enters a user ID and password to be used as the parms of the i5_connect
function. This is not hard, but I want to present that screen only once,
and use that info as the user moves from screen to screen, all of which
will require a 15_connection. I know that I can store the user and
password entered as $_SESSION variables, but I don;t like the idea of the
password being written to some place on the PC hard drive. (That's how
$_SESSION works, right?). Any suggestions on how to deal with this.
