POP3 authenticator for Squid
Copyright (C) 2006 Henrik Nordstrom
(ships with Squid as a basic authentication helper)
This program allows Squid web cache proxy users to authenticate against an IMAP4 server.
The program is designed to do very simple authentication using LOGIN over cleartext IMAP4.
It should be easy enough to modify to support other authentication methods, provided they are
supported by Mail::IMAPClient. Being able to use IMAPS would be very nice, but I don't
need to do that right now. Feel free to take that as an exercise for the reader ;-)
This authenticator is similar to other basic authenticators (like NCSA and POP3) that come
with Squid. Here is the relevant part from squid.conf:
auth_param basic program
So, for example:
auth_param basic program /usr/libexec/imap4.pl 192.168.2.220
where /usr/libexec/imap4.pl is where is program is located and 192.168.2.220 is the IP of
the IMAP server to be used for authentication.
Squid (I suppose you could use it with other applications)
Perl (tested with 5.8.4 )
- Mail::IMAPClient (tested with version 3.04 from CPAN)
IMAP server (ummm... anyway, tested with UW-IMAP)
