           Summary: Allow the overriding of 401 Unauthorized returns from an
                    origin server.
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.1-HEAD
          Platform: All
               URL: http://primero.ricilake.net/proxy21.patch
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: PatchAvailable
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_proxy
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ricilake@speedy.com.pe


This patch (also available for Apache 2.0 at
http://primero.ricilake.net/proxy2.patch ) implements a single directive:

ProxyAuthOverride 403 | 404 | Off

which, if not set to Off, converts 401 Unauthorized returns from a proxied
origin server into 403 or 404 status codes. It is intended for use in a reverse
proxy environment where it is not desirable to allow authentication with the
origin server.

Possibly the directive should also scrub Authorization: headers from the
request, as it is hard to imagine a use case where this is not desirable.
However, that can easily be done with mod_headers.
