Definition - What does Magic Cookie mean?
A magic cookie is a token of data exchanged from a server to a client that is used to track, authenticate and inform the client in the system about the presence of server. A magic cookie differs from a regular data packet because it does not contain readable data, only path information through which the server can be reached.
