I am doing my final year project using squid as my proxy server, i need to implement some secure way of authentication before anyone can have access to the internet. How do i go about that? I am using MySQL as my database, can I do it that way or is there another way to do it?

This link describes how to setup mysql-based authentication with squid. It seems easy to follow.
