This may or may not be relevant to your issue :
The AJP protocol used between Apache and Tomcat, allows Apache to pass 
an authenticated user-id to Tomcat in the request.
I do not remember precisely at what level this parameter "lives", but it 
is invoked as "tomcatAuthentication=false" either in the connector 
(mod_jk in my case) or in the <Connector> in Tomcat.
You may want to look this up, to see if it applies in your case.
