To do anything like caching with HTTPS content you need to have access
to the decrypted messages. Squid provides SSL-Bump feature for
intercepted traffic decryption.

Once Squid has the decrypted content the messages are handled the same
way as HTTP messages when it comes to caching.

Note that content "in the cloud" has a bad habit of not being cacheable.
And that when the web service is using TLS properly it cannot be bumped.
