[squid-users] HTTPS support

I wanted to set up a proxy on my home server for use from remote locations to use as a web proxy (of course) and also to run SSH over.  This means that basic auth is undesirable due to the login being sent in clear text.  So, someone suggested digest auth, and I was happy.  But, now I'm finding that PuTTY and WinSCP do not support digest auth.  And consequently, I haven't found any other SSH clients that support digest. (sigh)
So, I'm back to plan b, and that is to have a secure proxy connection so all browser-to-server communication is encrypted.  Since SSH over proxy might not be feasible because I don't want to use basic auth, I could use shellinabox if the proxy link is secure.  So the question is, does anyone know if squid 3.5 on Ubuntu 16.04 supports secure connections?  From what I've found it does not, although nothing has definitively said one way or another.  Is there a way to tell?  I've tried configuring for it and it didn't work, but I have little confidence in my config file for this.
