Is it possible to modify cookies when using nginx as a reverse proxy similar to what Set-Cookie does in apache?

I have a web application that sets session cookies and I wish to append the HttpOnly flag to them before they are served by nginx. Unfortunatly I cannot modify the source code of the application to do it there.

didn't tried it, but I suppose that you can modify the header via wiki.nginx.org/HttpHeadersMoreModule –  hellvinz May 23 '12 at 9:32
