           Summary: proxy_http doesn't set the hostname when doing reverse
                    proxy
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.54
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: mod_proxy
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rcritten@redhat.com


When doing a reverse proxy the proxy client connection remote_host field isn't
populated. Since this is already available as a result of the ProxyPassReverse
entry it makes sense to pass this on.

Otherwise a client that may want this hostname value has no access to it until
the request is being processed and in the case of an input filter that does
something like SSL may be too late. 

SSL connections should compare the requested hostname value with the certificate
subject returned by remote server. This is the only protection against
man-in-the-middle attacks. Once mod_proxy populates this field then SSL
connections can do this comparison.
