 It should be possible with netscape.  Mozilla in Debian is not making much
progress, because the maintainer doesn't want to do anything until someone
decides whether crypto can go in main now that US law is relaxed.  That's
why we're still at M18 with no crypto :(

 It's not a kernel thing.  All you need is a web browser that does
encryption.  I'm not sure how to do this with Netsape or Mozilla from the
debian packages, but lynx-ssl for one works fine.  konqueror +
kdebase-crypto also works fine.
