Re: [squid-users] encryption of username and password

Basically you can't.

For this to be possible the browsers need to support proxying using https,
but to my knowledge browsers only support proxying using http.

Squid-2.5 has everything you need for doing this, but until browsers can be
convinced to use https to talk to the proxy you won't get very far..

You can ofcourse use a encrypted network such as IP-SEC between the user and
the proxy server, but this is outside the scope of Squid.
