Not too sure this was needed? The SO question has an accepted answer which is correct - regardless of the need for an official source when Tim's answer below clearly demonstrates that secure pages are crawled. You've also gone on to answer this same question here. –  zigojacko Nov 6 '13 at 9:13

Yes. This is simple to demonstrate: A Google search for inurl:https yields 8.2 billion results.
