I have an existing SharePoint 2010 Foundation site. I am using claims authentication with a custom token provider. It current runs using http. I would like to use a cert to run on https. I already have an SSL cert. My concern is that I have permissions setup on on document libraries and documents. Everything I have read online mentions to extend the current web application. What happens to all the document libary/document permissions on the extended application? Will they be moved over? Is there a way to configure my current site to use https without extending it?

you dont need to extend the web app rather you have to update the IIS bindings.

On the WFE servers, Add the Binding for the SSL & attach the certs.

Now update the Https entry into the AAM via Central Admin.
