Modifying Headers Programmatically

I have an app that runs on frontend- and backend-servers. Customers login to the frontend-server and the same credentials are used for various apps available on the backend-servers. From within their session on the frontend-server, they select an app on the backend server, whereupon they automatically log into the backend-server app, using the same credentials. (Easy enough, so far).

For better security, I do not want to store username/password in the browser, but rather I'd like to store them on the frontend-server.

Permanently cache reverse-proxy results

The reverse-proxy receives the client's HTTP GET request, then:

1. Retrieves gzipped content from a back-end server
2. Inflates content
3. Performs many substitutions across various resources (JS, HTML, CSS, etc)
4. Deflates resulting content
