>isn't SSL something that is supported by the web servers.

No quite, SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. This is an additional socket
library that programmers can use, that offers encrypted data transfer, with
out the programmer having to do any thing.

Any TCP/IP application (FTP, Telnet, rlogin, web server, etc) can make use
of it, you just need to have both the server and client coded to make use of

Browsers have the code inside for HTTP on SLL, already.
