I have a squid proxy set up on a few different servers. I am behind it on most applications (firefox, other apps that allow proxy config, etc). right now I'm not using https, and if I look in wireshark, the requests to and from my server and not encrypted(obviously). if i change squid to use ssl, will the data between my computer and my squid proxy be encrypted? i know that in order for data to be encrypted both ways the remote server (site im visiting) needs to be using ssl as well.

Can you confirm that you are using this for browsing the Internet in general (rather then doing reverse proxying/accelleration for one site) ? If so, how do you propose to redirect http -> https traffic ? – davidgo Mar 18 '13 at 1:21

my solution was to use an ssh tunnel to the server. shitty but it does what i need it to.
