I'm pleased to announce TLS Lite v0.2.0.
TLS Lite is a pure-python, public domain SSL/TLS library. It supports encrypted and authenticated socket communications using the TLS protocol (RFC 2246, aka SSL v3.1). TLS Lite has minimal support for X.509 certificates, but focuses on up-and-coming authentication methods like SRP , shared-keys , and cryptoIDs .
These methods are easier to use than the X.509 certificates normally used with TLS. They're also barely out of the oven - the first two are Internet-Drafts, and the last is something I made up. It's fun stuff to mess with, but keep in mind that the drafts may change, and the code's alpha quality..
Other highlights: - SSL v3 and TLS v1 support - Pure python - with AES, throughput ~25 KB/sec, on a P4 1.7 Ghz - with RC4, throughput ~250 KB/sec - Can use cryptlib  or OpenSSL/M2crypto  for faster ciphers & math: - throughput ~6 MB/sec - Integrates with httplib and SocketServer framework
