Subject [jira] [Moved] (AWF-69) Verify "Host" in Http header
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 10:10:04 GMT


Tony Stevenson moved DEFT-25 to AWF-69:

    Reporter: Niklas Gustavsson
         Key: AWF-69  (was: DEFT-25)
     Project: Apache AWF  (was: Deft)
> Verify "Host" in Http header
> ----------------------------
>                 Key: AWF-69

>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Niklas Gustavsson
> Because of the urgency of implementing the new Host: header, servers are not allowed
to tolerate HTTP 1.1 requests without it. If a server receives such a request, it must return
a "400 Bad Request" response, like
>     HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
>     Content-Type: text/html
>     Content-Length: 111
>     <html><body>
>     <h2>No Host: header received</h2>
>     HTTP 1.1 requests must include the Host: header.
>     </body></html>
> This requirement applies only to clients using HTTP 1.1, not any future version of HTTP.
If the request uses an HTTP version later than 1.1, the server can accept an absolute URL
instead of a Host: header (see next section). If the request uses HTTP 1.0, the server may
accept the request without any host identification.
