Provides enhanced HTTPS support for httplib and urllib2 using PyOpenSSL

Project description

This is a HTTPS client implementation for httplib and urllib2 based on
PyOpenSSL. PyOpenSSL provides a more fully featured SSL implementation over the
default provided with Python and importantly enables full verification of the
SSL peer.

Prerequisites
=============
This has been developed and tested for Python 2.6 and 2.7 with pyOpenSSL 0.13.
Note that proxy support is only available from Python 2.6.2 onwards.

Installation
============
Installation can be performed using easy_install or pip.
