As for passwords, you should remember that this is basically a webserver, so you have two choices,
basic and digest. Basic authentication, which I believe is default, uses the systems users and
passwords stored in /etc/passwd or wherever. Digest uses it's own password file in
/etc/cups/passwd.md5 file. To add users to this file you need to use the lppasswd program. To verify
what type of password authentication is being used look for the "AuthType" directive in the
For further details check the "System Administrators Manual" located at
http://localhost:631/documentation.html or alternatively somewhere on the cups.org site.
