It is possible to set the default initial/splash page using the
external asl session helper, or a custom built one.
The documentation is sadly lacking online, but the helper built-in usage
info and man pages explain it fairly well.

And it is certainly possible to auth against LDAP

How it appears depends on the ACL order you configure, if the external
ACL takes %LOGIN, it will do login and check if the page needs to be shown.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE6 or 3.0.STABLE13
   Current Beta Squid
