Hi,

When you establish a ssl connection using the safari browser, Does the SSL connections get converted to a different protocol to interact with the IPhone?  Does SSL get turned into another protocol?  

Is this what is called the GAP in the WAP?

no, the iphone has a full https browser, not a WAP browser - the SSL used by safari on iphone is as strong as it would be on a PC; the "enhanced security" certs are not recognised until version 3.0 of the software though - that isn't to say they are any less secure on earlier releases, just that it doesn't do the "green bar" thing until 3.0.
