Ah, instead of finding its location in the webvpnc cookie, I suppose
we're supposed to extract it out of this...

< <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
< <config-auth client="vpn" type="complete">
< <vpn-profile-manifest>
< <vpn rev="1.0">
< <file type="profile" service-type="user">
< <uri>/CACHE/stc/profiles/OrionAnyConnect_Linux.xml</uri>
< <hash type="sha1">BE9E2E504509B3EB6C0A1B4E323F5E1EFCA84659</hash>
< </file>
< </vpn>
< </vpn-profile-manifest>
< </config>
< </config-auth>
