please any comments or thoughts? This might get quite useful when creating some kind of authentication and require minimal changes to httpd.
Simply one page/form to authenticate and then send browser a Set-Cookie with unique value, possibly expiration or other standard flags. Then only validate the unique value with every GET, POST request.

here is proposal to add cookie handling to HTTPD. It is quite simple and require LWIP_HTTPD_DYNAMIC_HEADERS to send the cookies. Also leaving all processing up to user application. Application then needs to provide following example functions.

#define SET_COOKIE_SIZE 48
char setCookie[SET_COOKIE_SIZE];

char httpd_set_cookies(const void connection, const char *uri) {

  if (connection == verifiedConn) {
    verifiedConn = NULL; // Clear verified connection
    snprintf(setCookie, SET_COOKIE_SIZE, HDR_HTTP_RES_SET_COOKIE "id=%08X\r\n",;
    return setCookie;
  return NULL;

void httpd_received_cookies(const void connection, const char cookies) {
  const char *sessionId = strstr(cookies, "id=");
  if (sessionId != NULL) {
     uint32_t value = strtol(sessionId+3, NULL, 16);
     if (value == {
       authorizedConn.conn = (uint32_t *)connection;
