Not sure what you are looking for.

If you look for a proxy which supports authentication, you can use squid (www.squid-cache.org).
I support authentication with user/password:
- Plain text.
- Digest.
- NTLM (SSO for windows clients).
- Kerberos (SSO for Windows, Linux,...).
- Digital certificate (soft or PCSC).
Also supports authorization against ldap, DAS, database,...

I don't know if is that what you are looking for...

I want to connect to proxy so i can get ip adress of server where i connect.Since i have dynamic ip address,i cannot use ip restriction to prevent non-authorized users to connect to proxy,that's why i need username/password authentication.I installed once proxy program and someone was using my server to send spam,which is why i am very careful when it comes to security on proxy servers.

If you need to control access (internet, internal servers) you can use a http proxy which uses authentication. Squid has different methods of authentication and authorization. So, instead of using IP clients to control access, you can use his username/passwd, certificate, ...
