Re: https_port




Hello,
I do not look for security, is that having no real internet ip in my company I need certain programs to go to the internet and for that I use proxycap (http://www.proxycap.com/) that makes me this function perfectly through the proxy . What happens is that with HTTP does not work and I need to pass my squid to use HTTPS authentication for the program (proxycap) to work well.

A friend told me that for https_port to work I needed validated certificates, not self-generated ones. I do not know to what extent this has to be so because the configuration I need is customized for me only and would be internal to my company that does not have visibility to the internet because this squid is a child of another that is the one that has the real internet ip .

I need the help to correctly create those certificates and the options to put in the line https_port.

I am very novice in squid and linux.

Thank you

Don't bother with autokey, it is not worth the pain.  If you can use ntp
symmetric key authentication, that one should take care of your servers
well enough.

There is no security for anything that is based on SNTP, though (that
"S" is for Simple, not Secure), you'd have to do it in a lower layer
(local firewall, IPSEC AH, whatever).
