Authentication in squid proxy server


The first thing that you will need to do when authenticating active directory users in squid proxy application will be to is to configure Squid so as it will be able to authenticate the  usernames and passwords with the Active Directory. You will also need to open your Squid configuration file which is labeled squid.conf,  and then make some changes as follows:

You will need to find the auth paramsection of the config file which is called TAG: auth_param, and then you will change the auth param basic programline and make it look as follows:

    auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ldap_auth -R

        -b "dc=vm-domain,dc=papercut,dc=com"

        -D "cn=Administrator,cn=Users,dc=your,dc=domain,dc=com"

        -w "password" -f sAMAccountName=%s -h

    auth_param basic children 5

    auth_param basic realm Your Organisation Name

    auth_param basic credentialsttl 5 minutes

What those settings will do is to tell Squid to authenticate the usernames and passwords in the Active Directory.
