Here is the core of the problem. As I understand it, the standard python
distribution doesn't support secure sockets on the server side, on any platform.

So you have two options

1. Use a library that is capable of secure server sockets, like M2Crypto.

2. Use stunnel* to encrypt the comms between your ssl-unaware clients and
servers.
