Dear Developpers and Community, I would like to set up the following configuration using squid: When a user asks for a web page he is transparently redirected to squid, where an authentication must be done before serving the user with content.
Please read http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/InterceptionProxy#Why_can.27t_I_use_authentication_together_with_interception_proxying.3F
However, users IP are being NATed before going to the proxy. So the solution would be to use an application-layer verification: cookies or http headers So, I come across the following solutions: 1. Use an ICAP server which checks if a cookie is set, otherwise set it for an authenticated user the problem is: cookies are bound to domains + each http request must be validated 2. Use a php splash page which sets the cookie then redirect to destination same problem as ICAP 3. using squid authentication and checking if Proxy-Authorization header is set before serving the client problem: sessions are associated to the IP by squid I'm using squid 3.1 Thank you for any idea
The whole point of transparent interception is that the browser is *completely unaware it is talking to a proxy*. It contacted some web server, and *all* of its communications are with that server. If you can find a way to trick it into storing security credentials of any kind set by your proxy it will consider those credentials safe to use when contacting the same server via other non-HTTP methods as well, causing great deal of problems. The good thing to do at that point is to report the zero-day security vulnerability you just found.
You might be able to use details gleaned from the browsers request to *guess* what user it is and have a external_acl_type script inform Squid of the guessed username. Or the authorize (*not* authenticate) the request to happen.
