Problem this snippet solves:

ADFS deliver persistent cookies that allow the user to connect to Sharepoint using WS-Fed. By default, the lifetime is about 12 hours and for security reason, should be changed to a lower value. This irule provide a 12 hours validity for the cookie but add a shorter timeout for inactivity.

How to use this snippet:

This irule change the default expiration time of the FedAuth cookie to a lower value. The expiration time is reset every time a user make a request until it reach the max expiration time. After the timeout or the max expiration time has been reached, the user is redirected back to the ADFS for authentication.
