In the Apache documentation (https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_proxy_ajp.html), there is a "secret" attribute for the mod_proxy_ajp. But it mentioned it is "Supported since 2.4.42".

As the recent vulnerability (CVE-2020-1938) is about to apply a password between Apache HTTP server and Tomcat server using AJP protocol, are there any official release of Apache 2.4.42 to support the "secret"?

It is expected this month, no day set.

The fix is already accepted to go in 2.4.42 :

mod_proxy_ajp: Add "secret" parameter to proxy workers
to implement legacy AJP13 authentication. The attribute is now suggested/required by tomcat.

Coming day I planned to make a snap 2 available for VS16, see https://www.apachelounge.com/viewtopic.php?t=8441

2.4.42 is not released, see https://www.apachelounge.com/Changelog-2.4.html

Voting for 2.4.43 is started today. Early next week is expected.
