This scenario sounds like some interaction between the HTTPONLY and the secure cookie, is taking place on this system. It is very important thorough which protocol you do access the NWA (http or HTTPS). Please have a look on this SAP KBA:

2068872 - HttpOnly and Secure cookie attributes

and these documents

Session Security Protection

Ticket issuing - UME properties

In general, when a server sets a cookie with the Secure attribute, once it is received by the browser, the browser will only send the cookie with requests that use https and not with unencrypted http requests. Hence, please test whether this scenario is the same when you do use HTTP or HTTPS.

So, if you do use http and the "secure" flag is set, this will instructs the browser to send the cookie only over HTTPS .

Then the request from browser to the AS Java system will be re-send again and again. As an outcome the adding of the TRUSTED system will not complete because the request is not accepted.

While doing the same thing, I cannot find the add trusted systems button in SAP Portal. Any idea if this is due to authorization, or any setting related issue.

In addition to Milen's answer, please check if the note 2543740 - Add Trusted System drop down is empty in SAP Netweaver AS JAVA
