hi,
  glad to hear that somany people are volunteering to work in SSL. my first
question is:
is it possible to have a jigsaw ssl proxy server? because, all the proxy
servers i have seen were all tunelling the content in the proxy phase. Can't
the content be decrypted and the encrypted once again in the proxy so that
we can apply ingoing filter and outgoing filter as we do with the normal
http requests?

or does anyone know any such existing proxy server in the market that is a
true HTTPS proxy?

if anyone is working on a similar problem pls let me know. we can find the
solution together.

vasan.
