    5 SharedCookieAuthPlugin allows cookies to be shared between Trac instances in the same environment (i.e. directory).  The plugin monkey-patches `trac.web.auth.LoginModule` so that cookies get set at `/` instead of `req.base_path` (though see trac:#8486 for the request to make this configurable). The incoming request is then passed by the `authenticate` method of the `IAuthenticator` interface to projects that peer the project of interest to see if the user is authenticated there.  This enables single-sign on for Trac projects in the same directory.

     9Note: As per request in [trac:ticket:8486 T#8486] a new configuration option, has been introduced to Trac with changeset [trac:changeset:9226 'T:[9226]'], that accomplished this: 
     10{{{ 
     11#!cfg 
     12[trac] 
     13auth_cookie_path = /var/www/trac 
     14}}} 
     15So this has been made a part of Trac, and the plugin is obsoleted for Trac version >= 0.12.
