You have two options for that:

- create multiple MapProxy configurations for each each user group (search for MultiMapProxy).
- use the authentication interface of MapProxy

The later requires some Python programming, but it is the most flexible. You can integrate existing user databases for example. You can reuse any cache in both cases.
