A full-featured Web proxy cache designed to run on Unix systems.

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects over IPv4 or IPv6. Unlike traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, asynchronous process.

Squid keeps meta data and especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Squid supports TLS, extensive access controls, and full request logging. By using the lightweight Internet Cache Protocol (ICP) and HTTP Cache Protocol (HTCP) Squid caches can be arranged in a hierarchy or mesh for additional bandwidth savings.
