Define security pupose..., it has a lot to do with how much you are valuing something - a session id is a throwaway value that is used along with other controls. A session id alone is not of much use except in gaming and novelty. It may make the application appear more sophisticated, but we are talking one inch off the floor in a room with an 8 foot ceiling.
