Authentication using squid

How do i give authentication for each user who are using my squid in such away that each user must have separate user name and password and they should be able to change their own password respectively. I tried once with ncsa_auth but i did not find a way for users to change their respective password.

If they are on a windows domain you could ntlm_auth for single signon that way their windows password is what they use for squid, and they can change it on their machines.

For others investigate tools like usermin they could have modules to do that.
