"""A library for integrating pyOpenSSL with CherryPy.
The OpenSSL module must be importable for SSL functionality.
You can obtain it from
To use this module, set CherryPyWSGIServer.ssl_adapter to an instance of
SSLAdapter. There are two ways to use SSL:
Method One
* ``ssl_adapter.context``: an instance of SSL.Context.
If this is not None, it is assumed to be an SSL.Context instance,
and will be passed to SSL.Connection on bind(). The developer is
responsible for forming a valid Context object. This approach is
to be preferred for more flexibility, e.g. if the cert and key are
streams instead of files, or need decryption, or SSL.SSLv3_METHOD
is desired instead of the default SSL.SSLv23_METHOD, etc. Consult
the pyOpenSSL documentation for complete options.
Method Two (shortcut)
* ``ssl_adapter.certificate``: the filename of the server SSL certificate.
* ``ssl_adapter.private_key``: the filename of the server's private key file.
Both are None by default. If ssl_adapter.context is None, but .private_key
and .certificate are both given and valid, they will be read, and the
context will be automatically created from them.
