HTTP Question

Are https URLs encrypted?

Are all URLs encrypted when using TLS/SSL (https) encryption? I would like to know because I want all URL data to be hidden when using TLS/SSL (https).

If TLS/SSL gives you total URL encryption then I don't have to worry about hiding confidential information from URLs.

Yes, the SSL connection is between the TCP layer and the HTTP layer. The client and server first establish a secure encrypted TCP connection (via the SSL/TLS protocol) and then the client will send the HTTP request (either GET or POST) over that encrypted TCP connection.
