Yes and no. The actual request is encrypted, so no one can read your URL
with the parameters on the wire. However, the full URL with the
parameters is probably stored in the log files of the server, your
browsers history, and can leak via referral headers.

Subject: [WEB400] REST web services and SSL
I have a security question related to REST web services. If you use
call a web service and the parameters are passed in the URL, are the
parameters encrypted? We are concerned about the data we are passing
and want make sure it is encrypted.
