Description of problem:
Customer requires the resolution for upstream bug 39673 (fix version 2.4) to be backported to RHEL 7 httpd (2.4.6). Other details are included upstream.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd 2.4.6 - mod_proxy
Steps to Reproduce:
As discussed in the upstream bug there is a protocol-level incompatibility between using connection-based authentication methods and HTTP, which is not truly resolvable. At best we could provide some band-aids here.
