HTTPS is also known as SSL.
Squid can and will proxy this, using a protocol called SSL tunneling.
SSL tunneling means that the client is able to open a connection to the
SSL server through the proxy, and the proxy will forward data both ways
and completely ignore the content (which it cannot understand because it
is encrypted)
