Rev and SSL

Hello List,

In my experimenting with Rev stacks calling
server-side relay scripts (PHP) to connect
with MySQL databases, one other gap in my
knowledge has appeared.

At present, my stack connects to the relay-script
which resides in a password/user protected directory

  post tFormData to url ""

But I'm guessing the problem with this is the password
and user id are easily readable if someone intercepts
the connection between my stack and the server.

Looking around for a solution, SSL seems possible.
If so, what Rev commands should I look into?

I looked at "encrypt", but have no idea how to go
about finding "cipher", "passorkey", "salt", etc.

Is there a way to do it with "post"? For example,
by connecting to an "https" url, i.e.

     post tFormData to url ""

Thank you.
