Subject [users@httpd] REMOTE_USER visibility and mod_headers
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2008 06:22:45 GMT
I have recently made attempts to add the authenticated username in apache to a HTTP header
using mod_headers. The httpd server acts as a man in the middle redirecting traffic to a tomcat
using mod_jk.

However it seems REMOTE_USER is not visible to the RequestHeader directive. Why is that? Is
RequestHeader perhaps processed before authentication has taken place? Is there any way to
change this behavior? The authentication module used is mod_spnego.
