You can connect to your nntp server with ssl or tls.

Normally RET on a URL should go to that url with the browser you defined
in the variable

,----[ C-h v browse-url-browser-function RET ]
| browse-url-browser-function is a variable defined in `browse-url.el'.
| Its value is browse-url-generic
| Documentation:
| *Function to display the current buffer in a WWW browser.  This is
| used by the `browse-url-at-point', `browse-url-at-mouse', and
| `browse-url-of-file' commands.
| If the value is not a function it should be a list of pairs (REGEXP
| . FUNCTION).  In this case the function called will be the one
| associated with the first REGEXP which matches the current URL.  The
| function is passed the URL and any other args of `browse-url'.  The
| last regexp should probably be "." to specify a default browser.

There are several browse-url-* functions for different browsers.

You can do that with TRAMP. Normally you simply open the file like this:

`C-x C-f /su:address@hidden:/path/to/file'
