You can use a modular ncsa_auth which is comes with squid tarbal it is not coming with default instalation i.e rpm. you can download squid tar bll from squid-cache web site. and commpile that tar ball then you can configure your squid as a authentication base proxy.

Best of Luck.

Thanks & regards.
