Proxy based authentication query

We are using ELK stack 6.4.1 with searchguard plugin and planning to use proxy based authentication.

From the searchguard document related to this proxy based authentication https://docs.search-guard.com/latest/proxy-authentication found a comment which states "This module is deprecated and will be replaced in future versions of Search Guard."

Can you please let us know what does this mean? Will this feature not be available in future releases?

Thanks & Regards,

Mahesh

This just means that the proxy module will be rewritten. There will be a community version (as it is now) and an enterprise version with more features.
