Dear, I can't understand an important concept:

I know that in transparent proxy mode, I have to intercept HTTPS
traffic in order to proxy and filter it.

But I read in the pfSense's Squid help that in explicit mode there is
no need to intercept the HTTPS traffic in order to proxy and filter
it....why is this possible? I think the explicit Squid proxy has to
intercept traffic in order to porxy and eventually filter it....

Please can you explain me this concept?

explicit mode is where the client explicitly connect to the proxy and asks
it to CONNECT to the server. There's no need to intercept the connection
because the connection is done to the proxy.
