X-security-header

Hello

I am new to nginx. This is most likely a beginner question. I apologize
in
advance.

I have a client that is sending http request with an x-security-header:
a6rb35723926d2c685c2d7ud3034179828blablabla

How can I configure nginx so that if the x-security-header is not
present
then the request is rejected?

Thank you very much for your help.

Conditional processing like this can be implemented using
directives of the rewrite module, “if” and “return” in particular:

if ($http_x_security_header != 

“a6rb35723926d2c685c2d7ud3034179828blablabla”) {
return 403;
}

See here for details:

http://nginx.org/r/return
