Session key.

> imp_key

Encryption key for IMP's session credentials.

> auth_key

Encryption key for Horde's password credentials.

The latter two are not strong encryption since the cookie could still  
be intercepted, but it means that you need _both_ access to the  
session store and a user's cookies to get their password, etc.
