Python and SSL

Discussion in 'Python' started by Illo de' Illis, Aug 4, 2003.

  1. While I was coding a software which needs to set up a SSL transaction
    with a client using an underlying proprietary protocol, I found
    that the _ssl module works only in SSL client mode. Moreover it is
    impossible to write a select()-based polling algorithm with it since
    I can't query SSLObject for any available data in input (this occurs
    only for nonblocking sockets of course), or alternatively I can't
    push the characters I read back into the OpenSSL BIO cache.
    Since the patch to apply to _ssl for this stuff to work is trivial,
    I would like to know whether somebody is doing that.

    Ciao,
    Illo.

    Don't know if it does what you want, but have you found m2crypto?
