I'm building a SSO system (with Apache2, Tomcat Realmn, Mod_JK) and I'd like to change dynamically the RequestHeader value in my apache configuration file (or in the .htaccess file), so that I can inject the username value from my authentication Form in RequestHeader :

RequestHeader set MyRemote-UserID "FORM_DYNAMIC_USERNAME_VALUE"

Does someone have any idea?

Thanks for your help
