**Note:** The Python Cryptographic Authority **strongly suggests** the use of `pyca/cryptography`_
where possible. If you are using pyOpenSSL for anything other than making a TLS connection
**you should move to cryptography and drop your pyOpenSSL dependency**.
High-level wrapper around a subset of the OpenSSL library. Includes
* ``SSL.Connection`` objects, wrapping the methods of Python's portable sockets
* Callbacks written in Python
* Extensive error-handling mechanism, mirroring OpenSSL's error codes
... and much more.
