Federal CIO Vivek Kundra has detailed a new plan on the use of HTTP cookies by federal agencies.
In addition, the Office of Management and Budget is looking at establishing three separate tiers of cookie usage. The first tier would use single-session technologies, while the second would use multi-session technologies that could be used in analytics only. The third tier would use multi-session technologies that can remember data or settings "beyond what is needed for Web analytics."
The OMB is seeking public comment on the proposed changes. You can send an e-mail or post a comment on the blog that details the changes.
