Hello,

thanks for the explanation about the communication strategy beetween Sq=
uid
and the helper. I missed it in the config file.

Anyway, I still can't find any direct reference to HHA1 in RCF2617. Wha=
t
does it correspond to?

Thank you in advance.
Regards

Squid.

2,3 is documented in the squid.conf comments

=3D=3D=3D Parameters for the digest scheme follow =3D=3D=3D

"program" cmdline
Specify the command for the external authenticator. Such
a program reads a line containing "username":"realm" and
replies with the appropriate H(A1) value base64 encoded.
See rfc 2616 for the definition of H(A1).

See also the operation of the operation of the digest_pw_auth helper as=

reference.

Search for H(A1) and you will find the correct references.
