encrypting all traffic by squid


We use a squid proxy server for all http traffic. Is there any way to configure squid so that all traffic which squid and workstation communicates is SSL and encrypted ?

Maybe use Stunnel?

I would have suggested Stunnel as well..

I *heard* that it will even encrypt data from the keyboard to the rest of the system (ie. cpu, etc).. but I have not had the time to try this, or verify it.

It would be nice if it was true.. because that would create a real problem for anyone trying to run a key-logging program on your machine.
