First, it's important to know that I want to use squid in transparent mode.

I'm using two redirector in serial. The last redirector is SquidGuard
which will redirect if the user tries to access a blacklisted URL.

The first redirector is our home made redirector. This redirector check
into a memcache ( server if a user is
authenticated. If not, the user is redirected to a portal page which can
authenticate or identify a user from many modules (ident, ntlm, basic
auth, cookie, etc.).

A diagram is available at:

Your comments on the design are welcomed.
