Subject SSL environment variables from apache mod_ssl
Date Wed, 22 May 2002 20:41:00 GMT
I desperately need the SSL environment variables like HTTPS or HTTPS_KEYSIZE,  
which should be delivered from mod_ssl to the JSP engine, after Apache has  
established a HTTPS connection. Especially I have to check the actual key  
size.

In tomcat-ssl-howto.html it is described how to adjust httpd.conf. Although I  
follow the guidelines, nothing happens. Is there something to be taken care  
of on the Tomcat side?

If I copy the JkExtractSSL etc. commands into the VirtualHost section, there  
is no Tomcat connection at all (no interceptor initiated, JSP source is  
delivered unprocessed).

Any ideas?

We use Tomcat 3.3, Apache 1.3.22, mod_ssl 2.8.5 on Solaris 5.7, JDK 1.2.2.
