CGI environment variables

When a browser makes a request to a server, the web server and the browser create environment variables. In ColdFusion, these variables are referred to as CGI environment variables. They take the CGI prefix regardless of whether the server uses a server API or CGI to communicate with the ColdFusion server.
Environment variables contain data about the transaction between the browser and the server, such as the IP Address, browser type, and authenticated username. You can reference CGI environment variables for a given page request anywhere in the page. CGI variables are read-only.
