I'm setting up a Squid forward proxy and I'm wondering if I could configure Squid in such a way that the connection from my web browser to squid is https regardless of whether the connection from squid to the destination website is http or https. In other words, I want my connection from my web browser to my forward proxy to be encrypted even though I'm just surfing normal http website through that proxy.

Can it be done?

Squid 3.0 has https_port configuration directive. See this configuration example on Squid Wiki for details.

  • The config example only covers the "reverse proxy" case. Will it work for a forward proxy as well?
