name:the name of the cookie. Required.
value:the cookie’s value or list of values.
path:the path for which this cookie applies. Defaults to the base directory of the CGI script.
domain:the domain for which this cookie applies.
expires:the time at which this cookie expires, as a Time object.
secure:whether this cookie is a secure cookie or not (default to false). Secure cookies are only transmitted to HTTPS servers.

These keywords correspond to attributes of the cookie object.
