WebID-ISSUE-28 (bblfish): How does the WebID protocol (foaf+ssl) interact with TLS proxies [User Interface/Browsers]

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/track/issues/28

Raised by: peter williams
On product: User Interface/Browsers

There are a number of issues.

A. User Interface Issues

   1. How do TLS proxies currently alert the user that he is using a proxy.
   2. How should the proxy alert the user that he is being proxied

B. Client Cert Requests

   How do requests for client certs work through a proxied SSL connection? Can they?

C. Technical 

    How do TLS web proxies work? Which RFC are they based on? 
    How does it compare to tunnelling? 

D. Security/Trust

    How do web proxies work without completely destroying the purpose of SSL/TLS
