If you mean an HTTP password challenge, then yes, Squid handles that, but
the page then fetched will NOT be cached by Squid since it's "private"
data (same result as if you told Squid to use the firewall directly and
skipped ipfwadm). If you're referring to some other challenge protocol,
then it'll likely fail completely.
