You need a SSLContext, and that SSLContext must have a cert / key pair
defined using the `load_cert_chain()` method.
I supposed you meant "asynchronously", not "synchronously". The
listening socket doesn't have to be a SSL socket, only the connected
sockets need to be wrapped. The non-blocking handshake shouldn't be
different (AFAICT) for a server SSL socket than for a client SSL socket.
