RE: [squid-users] SSL Acceleration

I would like to do that too, but it is my understanding that it can't be
done in Squid (someone tell me that I'm wrong!)

In your case could you run SSL on the Internal Target Sites too? I think
Squid can do that.

Or require that your users have IE and a Microsoft OS then you can use NTLM
authentication, which is (more) secure.

What I wanted to do is let outside users authenticate to Squid then relay
traffic through our IP address space to 3rd party websites that require
IP-authentication. I think I am out of luck so far as SSL.

There is a open source product that claims to do the SSL translation you
want, called DeleGate, which I have not
used myself.
