Description

There should be global flag to indicate that login page should be served over HTTPS. As of now once can run whole application over either HTTP or HTTPS. Running everything over HTTPS is overkill and sending user credentials over HTTP is a security whole.

I disagree!

There is no point in running only Login page in HTTPS and then let your session cookies visible to the rest of the world through HTTP only for some eavesdropper to hijack you once you logged in!

Everything should be HTTPS or HTTP only!
