Satellite proxy breaking SSL?
I am using a hybrid connection, as some might know, for my browsing and downloading. I use an EDGE modem for upload and a satellite for higher speed download. For the latter the proxy is being used, located in Luxembourg, where Astra is.
What happens is this. I send requests through my EDGE modem through my local ISP which then, thanks to a proxy, sends this request to the satellite ISP. The satellite ISP then takes the page or file that I requested and sends it back to me via satellite. The scheme is drawn on this image.
So now I'm wondering what happens to the SSL encryption in this process. Could the data get unencrypted somehow after it goes through the proxy ISP or do they keep the encryption safe?
In any way, the address bar on encrypted pages is yellow and the lock is displayed properly so firefox doesn't indicate any breakages in encryption, which is why I haven't been alarmed so far.
What do you think?
