[ic] Forcing SSL on a particular page

Hi, all.

I'm finding this surprisingly undocumented, or else I just missed it.  
In any case, what's the best approach to force a particular page, or set 
of pages, to use SSH (on Interchange 4.8.7)?  I've tried the 
"AlwaysSecure" catalog directive, which seems to make all links to 
specified pages use the secure server root, but the pages are still 
accessible with standard HTTP as well if you just type the URL in manually?

Is it best to just bounce them to the same page with HTTPS protocol if 
they try to access the page unencrypted?  I'm not crazy about bounces 
but this seems like a simple solution.

If this question has been asked and answered a million times before, I 
humbly apologize and seem to have failed in my search of the archives.

Thanks in advance.
