The browser does this automatically. The user only needs to enter their
login name and password once, until they exit and restart their browser.

It may be possible to build another authentication sheme based on IP
addresses and records of who is logged on to which IP address.

Not likely. Cookies are restricted to host domains.

MS Proxy 2.0 supports NTLM authentication when there is a single proxy
in the hierarchy and only if the client is Internet Explorer. There are
people trying to implement this for Squid, but it is not ready yet.

There is modules for having Squid verify the supplied username+password
to a radius server. Not sure if this is what you want however.
