ssh forwarding to ssl proxy?

  1. Hello, I am wondering if ssh handles ssl.

    What I mean is if I connect to a ssh shell and port forward to a ssl
    proxy on port 443, is the data encrypted so that it cannot be read,
    at the shell?

    Then from the proxy if I connect to an ssl server, like online banking,
    can credit card info be read anywhere between?

    This using securecrt as a client.

  2. I would assume it's theoretically possible, although I haven't tried it.
    As for it being encrypted, I would say that if it's possible to do it,
    then it would be encrypted, actually, it would be encrypted twice from
    the client side to the ssh server, then a single ssl encryption from the
    ssh server to the ssl server.

    Never tried it, but I may give it a go to check it out.
