Appendix 2. Configuring integration of the Squid service with Active Directory

3 July 2024

ID 166332

Active Directory integration lets you add Active Directory users as initiators of traffic processing rule triggering.

The provided instructions on configuring the Squid service are applicable if Kaspersky Web Traffic Security was installed from an RPM or DEB package to a ready-to-use operating system. If Kaspersky Web Traffic Security was installed from an ISO file, configuration files for the built-in proxy server cannot be manually changed.

You can use the following authentication mechanisms:

  • Kerberos authentication
  • NTLM authentication
  • Basic authentication

It is recommended to use Kerberos authentication because it is the most robust mechanism. NTLM and Basic authentication can let an attacker access user passwords by intercepting network traffic.
