I don't think squid works with NTP at all, but it's been a few years
since I played with Squid, so maybe someone else will be able to give
better advice.

  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
    well enough.

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