Reverse proxy detection
I am trying to enforce an Army policy to ensure all .mil websites are behind a reverse proxy. Is there any way to see if the site is behind a proxy? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

How are you trying to enforce this policy? Group policy, ACL (access rules) on a firewall, router, etc.? Once you defined what is your policy enforcement, we can try to pinpoint the direction to see if a policy is in play either by a simple traceroute, etc.

    We are trying to write a program to check if the site is using a proxy. We want to make sure that the site owners are doing what they say they will.

    If you have access to the backend server log files, you can check if all HTTP request to that server is coming from the proxy address. Externally, it is very hard to identify a well implemented reverse proxy.

    You may be able to use a local Web proxy or network analyzer to analyze HTTP requests and responses and see if/how they're being manipulated.
