Hi deras.

One of our customers want to enable authenticating in Apache http proxy in ERA appliance ( Centus 7).

It is possible ? and how ? , Because we did not find any document about this from ESET .

ERA 6.5 appliance (based on CentOS7) uses apache http proxy available from official CentOS repositories. Configuration file enabling http proxy with ERA specifics is located in file /etc/httpd/conf.d/proxy.conf. It should be possible to enable authentication as is described in Apache 2.4 documentation but it was not tested, nor it is documented by ESET.

Could you also ask customer for his reason to require authentication? Apache proxy distributed in ERA appliance is configured so that it forwards requests only to ESET servers. This significantly reduces risk of proxy misuse.

We test it and it work, We don't know why they want to use authenticating , they are a government and they want maximum security. We told them that this is a limited proxy just for ESET servers.
