[Wolves] Securing web traffic with an SSL proxy

If I'm in a hostile environment like a conference, I'm loath to use my
stuff on the web because people could sniff passwords and whatnot.
(Assume these things are not HTTPS.) Would it be possible to set up an
HTTPS proxy which is itself password protected, and set that as the
proxy server on my browser, so that all my connections seamlessly go

(me at conference) ------https(secure)--------> proxy

and the connection between me and the proxy can't be sniffed?

and irc is minized to it
<slick> I hate when I kick a dog and then the owner see's me and I
have to kill him
