Persistent cookie authenticator

The persistent cookie authenticator looks for a specific cookie in any request sent to it. If the request does not contain the cookie, the authenticator creates a cookie, and sends it in the response. This authenticator is not interactive, that is, it does not ask the user for credentials, and is mainly used in environment realms.
