Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-5309) SslFilter: sendRedirect does not support scheme change on the current host
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 12:51:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5309?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15385798#comment-15385798

Konrad Windszus commented on FELIX-5309:

There is currently an explicit test for the change of absolute URIs containing a different
scheme (https://github.com/apache/felix/blob/d48ced9595f0ac7cd9dd3864743598b832313d37/http/sslfilter/src/test/java/org/apache/felix/http/sslfilter/internal/SslFilterJettyTest.java#L102).
This test wrongly assumes that the current domain is being served exclusively by Apache Felix
(or at least only by backends supporting HTTPS).

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5309
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: http.sslfilter-1.0.6
>            Reporter: Konrad Windszus
> Consider the case where application A and B are running under the same domain example.com.
A is served by an Apache Felix (below https://example.com/A) and only supports HTTPS (being
terminated e.g. by a LoadBalancer in front). B is served by some other application server
(below https://example.com/B) and only supports HTTP.
> Now I create a link from A towards B with {{HttpServletResponse.sendRedirect("http://example.com/B/somepath"}}
> This URL is automatically converted by the SslFilter to {{https://example.com/B/somepath}}
which is clearly not intended.
> I think the sendRedirect(...) implementation of the SSLFilter from FELIX-4420 is way
too aggressive, because it will also rewrite absolute URIs.
> Actually absolute URIs should never been rewritten by that filter, only relative ones
(starting with a "/").
