This feature allow to delegate authentication to a reverse proxy, in front of the application. The user identity is forwarded using HTTP header.
This feature is enabled by adding auth.method.header = true in application.conf. Then the name of the header must be set by = AUTH_USER

This feature may imply security flaw if an user can contact TheHive directly. He would be able to set the configured header and choose his identity. Before enabling this feature, it is important to be sure that only the reverse proxy can contact the application.
