SQUID user & password


I have configured squid on one of my machines. I want to give access to internet to the users on the basis of username and passwords. When ever someone tries to use the netů he be prompted for a username & a password. And then the user mey be granted permissions based on the useraname & password. How can we implement this ???? Help

Use pam_auth module for authentication. In redhat systems located here:

chmod u+s /usr/lib/squid/pam_auth

So in squid.conf it will be:

auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/pam_auth

Also create a file if it doesn't exist called /etc/pam.d/squid containing:
auth            required service=system-auth
account         required service=system-auth
