This question was asked at StackOverflow, but it doesn't have good references.

  • 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.
