[squid-users] SSL Acceleration

I would like to use squid as an external front end to a series of Internal
sites. Where the external client authenticates to the squid server and the
squid server then does some trickery to display internal content. Obviously
I am not to keen on sending pretty much (near as damn it) clear text
username and password across the Internet so would like to use SSL for
Client to SQUID communications.


Client ======> External Visible Squid Accelerator =========> Internal
Target Site
        SLL NO SSL

The connection between the SQUID server and the target server does not use
SSL. Only the connection between the client and the squid server would use
SSL. The only reason I want to use SSL between the Client and the Squid
server is to encrypt the username and password.

I already have it working fine without the SSL piece of the puzzle, is the
SSL piece possible, how?
