Configuring Squid LDAP Authentication
The first step is to configure Squid to authenticate usernames/passwords with the Active Directory. You will need to open your Squid configuration file (squid.conf) and make the following changes:

Find the auth param section of the config file (TAG: auth_param), and change the auth param basic program line to look like this. (Indented text indicates one line)

    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 192.168.1.75
    auth_param basic children 5
    auth_param basic realm Your Organisation Name
    auth_param basic credentialsttl 5 minutes
These settings tell Squid authenticate names/passwords in the Active Directory.

The -b option indicated the LDAP base distinguished name of your domain. E.g. your.domain.com would be dc=your,dc=domain,dc=com
The D option indicates the user that is used to perform the LDAP query. (e.g an Administrator. This example uses the built-in Administrator user, however you can use another user of your choice.
The w option is the password for the user specified in the D option. For better security you can store the password in a file and use the W /path/to/password_file syntax instead
-h is used to indicate the LDAP server to connect to. E.g. your domain controller.
-R is needed to make Squid authenticate against Windows AD
The f option is the LDAP query used to lookup the user. In the above example, sAMAccountName=%s, will match if the users Windows logon name matches the username entered when prompted by Squid. You can search any value in the LDAP filter query. You may need to use an LDAP search query tool to help get the syntax correct for the f search filter.
The %s is replaced with what the user enters as their username.
Remember to restart Squid to make these changes to come into effect.

auth_param ntlm program /usr/local/samba/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-ntlmssp
auth_param ntlm children 30
auth_param ntlm max_challenge_reuses 0
auth_param ntlm max_challenge_lifetime 2 minutes
auth_param basic program /usr/local/samba/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-basic
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours

This is the configuration to help you with "transparent" authentication against AD.  In otherwords, it stops the username / password box popping up everytime your users open a new browser.  This does require that winbind is working.

Check out http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/squid-ntlm-authentication-configuration-howto/ for a step by step guide.

If we implement the above one ,in squid acess log file i am able to see the windows user names but i want configure in such a way that  when any user wants to access internet, squid proxy has to ask for authentication once user provide his/her username and password it has to allow.

But in my case its not asking for username nad password but its showing the usernames in squid access log files. Give your valuable suggestions.
Thxs in Advance
