I don't have any particular knowledge of what is in the auth cookie, but I believe it is just a cert-signed session token. I currently use auth cookies to handle login to multiple gateways (different IPs) from a single portal. Just use a unique cert for auth and copy it (and the private key) to multiple PAs.
