HTTP headers such as ct_remote_user

Hi Everyone,

 

I am trying to understand the source of an HTTP header ct_remote_user. The older application I'm trying to refresh for Red Hat GNU/Linux 7 generates an error when this header is not found. It is possible this is something created in our code. But "ct_" suggests this originates with ClearTrust (which I believe is the older name of RSA Access Manager).

 

I've searched through several of the tables in the Oracle database holding the data for our RSA Access Manager, but, no luck so far.

 

In the admin console I saw "Exportable Properties" could be defined for an application but again, no luck finding my Waldo (ct_remote_user).

 

Any pointers on this would be greatly appreciated. If I self-discover an answer I'll head back here and post an update.

 

Kind regards,
