The easiest way to do it is with Webmin authentication default program (a perl scriptt).

After setting this up u need to declare proxy users and passwords.

Later u can build you ACL with "groups" of authenticated people to filter them if u want.

auth_param basic program /etc/squid/ /etc/squid/users # Use webmin for
creating, enabling, deleting the users in /etc/squid/users

acl usuarios_web proxy_auth REQUIRED # This will match any authenticated user

http_access allow usuarios_web_proxy

If u want to go deeper u have other authentications methods:

linux traditional user/password database lookup
shadow password database lookup
smb authentication (samba)
and i think there are other ones....

Try the webmin fastroad first for starting.

Hope this help
