        if { [SSL::cipher version] eq "TLSv1" } {
            if { not ( [HTTP::cookie exists TLSDISABLE] ) } {
                set expires [clock format [expr { [clock seconds] + 28800 } ] -format "%a, %d-%b-%Y %T GMT" -gmt 1]
                HTTP::respond 302 Location "" "Set-Cookie" "TLSDISABLE=good; path=/; Expires=${expires}; Secure; HttpOnly"


    The Expires attribute would look something like this Expires=Sat, 18-Mar-2017 05:32:54 GMT
