Thanks for the answer Joshua.

So this mean that i'm right for "Remote_User" in SetEnvIf dirrective.
Yes, this should be a solution for the problem and it should be work.

for 4-5 users only, the others should be logged in ssl_access_log file.

The point is to check what these users do and control them.
