Subject Apache as Reverse Proxy
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2007 13:31:32 GMT
Hi all,
        We are running Apache 2.0 as a reverse proxy with backend servers
being apache as well. The reverse proxy uses SSL to talk to backend servers.
These back end servers require client authentication. Is there any way we
can pass off this client certificate from proxy to backend server. Is it
advisable to derive some credentials from the client cert presented to proxy
& set a custom http header that will be passed to backend server? Is there
any better mechanism to do the same.

Thanks for any help.
