I need to estimate how much bandwidth (in Kilobytes) I will consume doing a https request (with client ssl authentication) between two servers connected through VPN over Internet.

There's no need to be precise (I know it depends on protocols which are still not defined) but I just need a range.

The question: For 1Kb Raw Data (Request and Response) how much HTTP/HTTPS + VPN encapsulation (if there's some encapsulation) will increase data size?
