If you want to disable caching for a specific response, you can use the
proxy_no_cache directive. Pass it $upstream_http_x_secured_page if you want
to disable caching of responses having this HTTP header.
Using "if" directive for analyzing output headers like $sent_http_x_secured_page
will not work since "if" is evaluated at an early request processing stage
(rewrite phase) and no output is normally created by this time.
