Can you access browser cookies within a Silverlight app?

    General discussion

  • I'm writing a in-browser Silverlight app that uses passive WIF authentication.  So when the app initializes, the host browser already has a cookie indicating that it has authenticated with the STS.  No problem there.  Now I want to implement single sign on with a number of REST services that trust the same STS and are cosumed by the Silverlight app.  To do this, I think I need to get a hold of the cookie the broswer got from the STS so I can use it when accessing the REST services via WebClient within the Silverlight app.  Is there a way to get cookies from the hosting browser?
