NAMEbasic_ncsa_auth - NCSA httpd-style password file authentication helper for Squid
SYNOPSISbasic_ncsa_auth passwd file
DESCRIPTIONbasic_ncsa_auth allows Squid to read and authenticate user and password information from an NCSA/Apache httpd-style password file when using basic HTTP authentication.
This password file can be manipulated using htpasswd.
This authenticator accepts: *Blowfish-forpasswords72charactersorlessinlength *SHA256-withsaltingandmagicstrings *SHA512-withsaltingandmagicstrings *MD5-withoptionalsaltandmagicstrings *DES-forpasswords8charactersorlessinlength NOTE: Blowfish and SHA algorithms require system-specific support.
OPTIONSThe only parameter is the password file. It must have permissions to be read by the user that Squid is running as.
- basic_ncsa_auth /etc/squid/squid.pass
basic_ncsa_auth must have access to the password file to be executed.
DES functionality (used by htpasswd by default) silently truncates passwords to 8 characters. Allowing login with password values shorter than the one desired. This authenticator will reject login with long passwords when using DES.
