For this you will have to setup a RemoveIpValve [1] in your
context.xml/server.xml/context.xml.default like this:

<Valve
className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve"
remoteIpHeader="X-Forwarded-For"
protocolHeader="X-Forwarded-Proto" />

In nginx you may use configuration provided by cfsego but don't forget
to add X-Forwarded-Proto if you use https on nginx. Also you may
remove X-Real-IP header because it's not used in this setup:

>>> location / {
>>> proxy_pass 127.0.0.1:8080;
>>> proxy_set_header Host $host;
>>> proxy_set_header $remote_addr;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

>>> proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
>>> }


This way Tomcat will be aware of https and will use secure cookies for sessions.
