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.

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 can be performed using easy_install or pip.
