Below I leave the link. I think that with this you could achieve your goal.
In this project there are more things that you might not want to use or
maybe you do. To begin I believe that it is well.

   - High availability load balancing frontend between users and backend
   proxy nodes.
   - VIP (floating IP) for the load balancers.
   - Automatic configuration script for internal routing.
   - Proxy pool with integrated Kerberos and LDAP authentication in Active
   - Domain, IP, and port filtering
   - Active Directory group browsing permissions
   - Navigation reports by cost centers and/or individual users
   - Bandwidth usage control per user.


Any question you may have, please reply with a copy to SQUID's mailing list
in order to share with the community of users information that they may
find useful.

Best regards,
