Subject [users@httpd] Secured connection between Apache Httpd and Tomcat over AJP protocol
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 14:16:29 GMT
Hi All,

Good Morning.

I have Httpd process and Tomcat instances both running on 2 different
machines. The communication between them happens through AJP protocol
(mod_jk) which doesnt support encryption. But we are using some features of
mod_jk like automatic passing of security information like SSL certificate
to tomcat which inturn is accessed in our application, validated and

Now, we have requirement to make the communication between them as Secured.
Since AJP doesnt support encryption, I came to know that we need to use
SSH, IPSec. But I could not find any proper document to configure SSH or
IPSec for AJP. Could please share if you any.

I have considered mod_proxy_http as well for supporting security which is
easy to configure as well. But as I mentioned above we are already making
use mod_jk features. Again it will require more efforts to migrate from
mod_jk to mod_proxy_http.

Any other suggestions please.

Thanks in Advance.

Best Regards,
