Simple wsgi middleware to unproxy AWS
Set the correct REMOTE_ADDR based on the X-Forwarded-For header, while only trusting the CloudFront IP addresses.
This module is applied as WSGI middleware, fixing the IP-address retrieval for the entire application in a secure manner. As extra benefit, external packages no longer have to write abstraction layers to retrieve the IP-address header.
In Django edit the wsgi.py file to apply the module:
from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application from wsgi_aws_unproxy import UnProxy application = get_wsgi_application() application = UnProxy(application)
Now all packages can just read request.META['REMOTE_ADDR'] to fetch the correct IP. This includes contact forms, Sentry error reporting and rate limiting tools.
You can install the latest version using pip:
pip install wsgi-aws-unproxy
And apply it as WSGI middleware:
from wsgi_aws_unproxy import UnProxy application = UnProxy(application)
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
