You can configure user agents to send traffic via an encrypted channel
to the Squid box. Once it reaches the Squid box, the traffic will be
unencrypted and sent to Squid. You can use ssh port forwarding, stunnel,
or other TCP-level encryption tools to do that. This assumes that users
and Squid are located on the opposite sides of the filter, and that
Squid and user boxes themselves are secure.
