Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr> added the comment:

It should be noted that there are two possibilities for encrypted NNTP:
- NNTPS, that is NNTP-over-SSL on port 563, as proposed here
- plain NNTP with the STARTTLS capability as described in RFC 4642

For the record, gmane provides the former (on snews.gmane.org:563) but not the latter.
