Me and a few friends were going to start a project that involves the interfacing of a web server with he arduino uno. However we ran into a road block when we quickly realized the lack of support for ssl on the arduino ethernet shields and the arduino itself. Does the UNO32 have the ability to receive commands via https?

I could be mistaken, but I don't believe that it is possible to do SSL or HTTPS with the Arduno ethernet shield. If it is possible, it would require bypassing the protocol stack running on the WizNet chip and implementing it yourself. Since there is no support for SSL in the current Arduino ethernet library, it would have to be extended to provide new interfaces to support it.

I don't know of anyone working on an ethernet interface for the Uno32.

The Network Shield for the Max32 board has been waiting for the ethernet and USB libraries to be completed, which is now done and are ready to be released soon. The initial libraries that are going to be released with the Network Shield don't support SSL or HTTPS either. However, these libraries are built on top of the Microchip Applications Library, which does provide support for these protocols. Using this, it would be relatively easy to add support for these to the Network Shield libraries for he Max32.
