Squid can offer both types. Configure two sets of auth_param in the
order you would prefer them to be used.

It is completely up to the agent to pick the one it wants reply with.
Some agents use the order offered as a hint. Others pick the strongest
encryption they support.

This is as good as it gets at present. In all Squid 2.6+.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.9
   Beta testers wanted for
