That's not really a useful answer though, is it?

You can't use the regular http "WWW-Authenticate" style authentication, but you can redirect the user to a captive portal style page and have them authenticate to that, then redirect back to the original address.

Have a look at for some info about the concept, and some limitations.

Making it work with squid is an exercise for the reader, although I'm sure someone has described a solution somewhere before.
