apache itself does not set/add/modifie cookies, that's done by your application and/or application server

for apache you need to use mod_session_cookie or mod_rewrite (which has a cookie flag for RewriteRule)

Thinking making the keep alive short can make the cookie expired sooner as nother that persistent since it is sessions...or simply rewrite the session id through web proxy... http://wpcertification.blogspot.com/2009/08/configuring-cookie-based-session.html?m=1
