NAME
cachemgr.cgi - Squid HTTP proxy manager CGI web interface SYNOPSIS
http://your.server/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi DESCRIPTION
The cache manager ( cachemgr.cgi ) is a CGI utility for displaying statistics about the Squid HTTP proxy process as it runs. The cache man- ager is a convenient way to manage the cache and view statistics without logging into the server. CONFIGURATION
Configuration examples for many common web servers can be found in the Squid FAQ wiki. http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq ./cachemgr.conf /etc/squid/cachemgr.conf The access configuration file defining which Squid servers may be managed via this cachemgr.cgi program. Each line specifies a server:port followed by an optional description The server name may contain shell wildcard characters such as *, [] etc. A quick selection dropdown menu is automatically con- structed from the simple server names. Specifying :port is optional. If not specified then the default proxy port is assumed. :* or :any matches any port on the target server. SECURITY
cachemgr.cgi calls the requested server on the requested port using HTTP and returns a formatted version of the response. To avoid abuse it is recommended to configure your web server to restrict access to the cachemgr.cgi program. AUTHOR

NAME
digest_file_auth - File based digest authentication helper for Squid. Version 1.0 SYNOPSIS
digest_file_auth [-c] file DESCRIPTION
digest_file_auth is an installed binary authentication program for Squid. It handles digest authentication protocol and authenticates against a text file backend. OPTIONS
-c Accept digest hashed passwords rather than plaintext in the password file CONFIGURATION
Username database file format: - comment lines are possible and should start with a '#'; - empty or blank lines are possible; - plaintext entry format is username:password - HA1 entry format is username:realm:HA1 To build a directory integrated backend, you need to be able to calculate the HA1 returned to squid. To avoid storing a plaintext password you can calculate MD5(username:realm:password) when the user changes their password, and store the tuple username:realm:HA1. then find the matching username:realm when squid asks for the HA1. This implementation could be improved by using such a triple for the file format. However storing such a triple does little to improve security: If compromised the username:realm:HA1 combination is "plaintext equivalent" - for the purposes of digest authentication they allow the user access. Password syncronisation is not tackled by digest - just preventing on the wire compromise. AUTHOR
