Subject [jira] [Created] (FELIX-4420) [HTTP SSLFilter] Implement sendRedirect
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2014 10:32:09 GMT
Felix Meschberger created FELIX-4420:

             Summary: [HTTP SSLFilter] Implement sendRedirect
                 Key: FELIX-4420
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4420
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Service
    Affects Versions: http-2.2.1
            Reporter: Felix Meschberger
            Assignee: Felix Meschberger
             Fix For: http-2.2.2, http-sslfilter-1.0.0

The HTTP SSL Filter service implemented in FELIX-3693 supports revealing the actual protocol
used by the client side browser by inspecting a request header and exposing the proper scheme
through its ServletRequest.getScheme() implementation if the actual server is operated behind
an SSL terminating proxy (i.e. client connects with HTTPS to proxy, proxy forwards request
to server over plain HTTP)

The HttpServletRequest.sendRedirect() method is declared to set the Location header to the
absolute redirect URL which includes the scheme. In an SSL terminating proxy situation, the
servlet container does not know about this fact and hence uses the actual server scheme (HTTP)
for the redirect instead of the scheme used by client.

To fix this situation the SSL filter response should implement the HttpServletResponse.sendRedirect()
method to use use the client side scheme as extracted from the request instead of the actual
server request.
