    Default Does Web Cache work with SSL Traffic

    As the subject says, without digging into how squid is setup, does the Web Cache have anything special to cache SSL pages or is it strictly html/files only?

    I don't know how any cache can work with SSL since the entire conversation is encrypted. it wouldn't know what to cache.

    I was just curious, I've read about some voodoo one can do to make squid cache SSL, but I thought the same thing of "how is caching something that is encrypted?"

    I'm trying to optimize my web cache machine by making sure everything bypasses the UVM except for traffic that the web cache will work with.

    Right now, it bypasses all protocols except TCP and then another filter that bypasses all traffic not on port 80.

    Sounds like an optimized setup right??
