Tomcat supports some "X-Forwarded-*" headers with RemoteIpValve and RemoteIpFilter.

Tomcat could support the rfc7239 specification and its "Forwarded" header.
Comment 1 Christopher Schultz 2019-01-18 17:38:20 UTC
I would recommend adding a new configuration option which specifies which strategy to use: legacy, rfc7239, or "both" where both types of headers are accepted. The default should be the old behavior.

Care to provide a patch?
