      Description

      As OWASP states, new JSESSIONID should always be created after successful authentication.

      Currently AuthenticatedWebSession in "signIn" method calls "bind()" where session is created only if

      if (store.lookup(request) == null)
      {
      	// explicitly create a session
      	id = store.getSessionId(request, true);
      	// bind it
      	store.bind(request, this);
      }
      

      which doesn't follow OWASP guidelines and causes security threat
