Subject [users@httpd] Check and drop http request at Apache proxy
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2007 08:36:07 GMT
Hi List,

I need to host a proxy server on the open Internet and handle only
authenticated requests.
I have an apache in-filter that reads the request headers and checks for
the authentication key in the headers.

Once authentication is successful the module lets the request through.
If authentication fails, I respond by putting a dummy web page. Now, is
there a way to drop requests whose authentication fails?
