squid Cookbook

Configures squid as a caching proxy.

Recipes

default

The default recipe installs squid and sets up simple proxy caching. As of now, the options you may change are the port (node['squid']['port']) and the network the caching proxy is available on the subnet from node.ipaddress (ie. "192.168.1.0/24") but may be overridden with node['squid']['network']. The size of objects allowed to be stored has been bumped up to allow for caching of installation files. An optional (node['squid']['cache_peer']), if set, will be written verbatim to the template.

Usage

Include the squid recipe on the server. Other nodes may search for this node as their caching proxy and use the node.ipaddress and node['squid']['port'] to point at it.

Databags are able to be used for storing host & url acls and also which hosts/nets are able to access which hosts/url

LDAP Authentication

  • Set (node['squid']['enable_ldap']) to true.
  • Modify the ldap attributes for your environment.
  • To create the ldap acls in squid.conf, you also need the two ldap_auth databag items as shown in the LDAP Databags below.

Example Databags

squid_urls - yubikey item

{
  "urls": [
    "^https://api.yubico.com/wsapi/2.0/verify"
  ],
  "id": "yubikey"
}

squid_hosts - bastion item

{
  "type": "src",
  "id": "bastion",
  "net": [
    "192.168.0.2/32"
  ]
}

squid_acls - bastion item

{
  "id": "bastion",
  "acl": [
    [
      "yubikey",
      "allow"
    ],
    [
      "all",
      "deny"
    ]
  ]
}

LDAP Databags

The following two data bags are only required if you are using LDAP Authentication.

squid_hosts - ldap_auth item

{
  "type": "proxy_auth",
  "id": "ldap_auth",
  "net": [
    "REQUIRED"
  ]
}

squid_acls - ldap_auth item

{
  "id": "ldap_auth",
  "acl": [
    [
      "",
      "allow"
    ]
  ]
}
