ncsa_auth - NCSA httpd-style password file authentication helper for Squid
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.
The only parameter is the password file. It must have permissions to be read by the user that Squid is running as (cache_effective_user in squid.conf).
This password file can be manipulated using htpasswd.
Only specify the password file name.
ncsa_auth must have access to the password file to be executed.
