Please note that the Python builtin SSL support is not really secure. It
does not make sure that you connect to the site you think you are
connecting to, for example.
If you really need secure SSL (what is the point of SSL if not secure I
ask) you should look at other Python modules. There are several to
choose from, for example M2Crypto (I am the maintainer of that), TLS
Lite, PyOpenSSL, PyOpenSSL-extended, and possibly others that I am
forgetting right now.
