Option to configure OIDCClient to pass the sessionID in a more secure manner

We have learned from our security team that the session ID for the /oidcclient/redirect/azureclient URL is being passed in the URL using clear text. I had opened a case with WAS support to see how the issue could be mitigated by sending sessionID in a more secure manner. I was informed by WAS support that there is no way to configure the product to pass the session ID any other way. Support suggested that we submit a request for enhancement. The enhncement that I am looking for is to have the session ID be passed in a more secure manner or at least have an option to pass the session ID in a more secure manner.

    Hi, thank you for submitting this request for enhancement. After evaluating this request, we believe the existing method of passing the sessionID is secure as long as the HTTPS protocol is being used to fully encrypt the request. For that reason, we don't believe it is necessary to further secure the passing of the sessionID.
