In almost all implementations, when a session ID is used it is
the information that identifies the user as logged in using a
given account. That information is typically sufficient to obtain
access to said account, so session IDs are typically secret. Of
course you can imagine or find a counter-example, but it doesn't
weaken the point: randomUUID is not suitable to generate secrets.
