I would like to call a CGI on a remote SSL server from within a CGI on another SSL (Stronghold) server. It is imperative that the parameters passed to the remote server be encrypted.  Is there an easy way to access the Stronghold
API from within my CGI? I am familiar with socket programming...

Stronghold relies on the SSLeay package for encryption. For SSLeay there is also a perl interface module, which you can use if your CGI is written in perl. Additional information on SSLeay can be found at http://www.psy.uq.oz.au/~ftp/Crypto/, for example.
