Take a look at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/plone.session

It's a PAS plugin that uses signed cookies rather than server side
sessions. These cookies are timestamped and have an expiration timeout
after which they are considered invalid. When you use a short timeout
then there is some javascript that will update the cookie periodically
while the user is active on the page.
