Skipper is probably supported by Authelia.

Important: When using these guides, it’s important to recognize that we cannot provide a guide for every possible method of deploying a proxy. These guides show a suggested setup only, and you need to understand the proxy configuration and customize it to your needs. To-that-end, we include links to the official proxy documentation throughout this documentation and in the See Also section.


It’s currently not certain, but fairly likely that Skipper is supported by Authelia. We wish to add documentation and thus if anyone has this working please let us know.

We will aim to perform documentation for this on our own but there is no current timeframe.

Get started

It’s strongly recommended that users setting up Authelia for the first time take a look at our Get started guide. This takes you through various steps which are essential to bootstrapping Authelia.

Trusted Proxies

Important: You should read the Forwarded Headers section and this section as part of any proxy configuration. Especially if you have never read it before.

Important: The included example is NOT meant for production use. It’s used expressly as an example to showcase how you can configure multiple IP ranges. You should customize this example to fit your specific architecture and needs. You should only include the specific IP address ranges of the trusted proxies within your architecture and should not trust entire subnets unless that subnet only has trusted proxies and no other services.

Assumptions and Adaptation

This guide makes a few assumptions. These assumptions may require adaptation in more advanced and complex scenarios. We can not reasonably have examples for every advanced configuration option that exists. The following are the assumptions we make:

  • Deployment Scenario:
    • Single Host
    • Authelia is deployed as a Container with the container name authelia on port 9091
    • Proxy is deployed as a Container on a network shared with Authelia
  • The above assumption means that Authelia should be accessible to the proxy on http://authelia:9091 and as such:
    • You will have to adapt all instances of the above URL to be https:// if Authelia configuration has a TLS key and certificate defined
    • You will have to adapt all instances of authelia in the URL if:
      • you’re using a different container name
      • you deployed the proxy to a different location
    • You will have to adapt all instances of 9091 in the URL if:
      • you have adjusted the default port in the configuration
    • You will have to adapt the entire URL if:
      • Authelia is on a different host to the proxy
  • All services are part of the domain:
    • This domain and the subdomains will have to be adapted in all examples to match your specific domains unless you’re just testing or you want to use that specific domain


Support for Skipper should be possible via Skipper’s Webhook Filter.
