Hello,

Plenty of howtos out there on the Internet on how to authenticate users agains LDAP and/or Active Directory. Take your pick:
http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigEx...ctiveDirectory
http://klaubert.wordpress.com/2008/0...ive-directory/
http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-...ntication.html

If you need more, Google is the best starting place. When you follow any of the guides and encounter problems/questions, post as verbose as possible to get an adequate answer.

Kind regards,

Eric

I have gone through with so many webpages.Anyway still I need to cross some more.

Below link talks about base64 format.

http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features...Authentication

As this format does not encrypt,is it safe to use in the environment like squid+router server needs to be authenticated by windows 2003 AD? This question has raised.Because I am planning to use domain login credential to authenticate users when they browse.

Expecting your valuable advice.

Thanks in advance

Ok, so as EricTRA told you, there are many how-tos on how to let Squid use Active Directory, and he even gave you a link to the Squid documentation on how to do it. And we don't know what's safe in your environment, because you haven't TOLD us anything about it. If you're using AD now, then you've got the documentation that tells you how to use AD with Squid. If you don't want to use that, then pick something else...there's not much else we can tell you.
