Subject [Bug 60862] New: Authentication through APACHE reverse proxy
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2017 09:52:28 GMT

            Bug ID: 60862
           Summary: Authentication through APACHE reverse proxy
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.15
          Hardware: Sun
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_proxy
  Target Milestone: ---

Created attachment 34822
httpd configuration file and mod_proxy_dwa.c

Implement a module for APACHE which perform authentication in place of the end
user with his remote_uid (provided by Siteminder) when accessing the

In the attached file "mod_proxy_dwa.c", we simulate the Siteminder remote uid
by setting in the code an existing login/password : LQE/123456789

This authentication is made in a module for APACHE httpd.x86_64

We try to create our own module based on mod_proxy module’s sources and add our
modification in it module. Then use our own module in place of mod_proxy.
We set our login/password in the request of the URL

apxs -n proxy_dwa -cia mod_proxy_dwa.c

APACHE start :
httpd -k start

The login/password set is not taken in account.
We did not succeed to replace mod_proxy by our module, some other modules
depend on mod_proxy, and our module do not match, but we don’t know why.

I attach to the incident the source code of our module "mod_proxy_dwa.c" and
the APACHE configuration file "httpd.conf".
