Has anyone implemented SSL filtering in squid?
I recently read about SSL filtering in eweek and they mention:

SSL has been broken by well-intentioned security vendors trying to provide
requested capabilities to their customers. Both the vendors and at least
some of their customers see SSL as a potential hole in their firewall and
security infrastructure. Because SSL is a secure and encrypted connection,
it has been impossible to scan SSL connections for viruses or to apply
content filters to the information that passes through an SSL connection.

So, to close this potential hole, security vendors such as Secure Computing
and Webwasher recently have added a feature known as SSL filtering to their
products. This feature works as a sort of virtual proxy between clients and
SSL servers, decrypting and scanning SSL links before sending the
information on.

Question: does squid support SSL filtering?

Thank you,
