INTRODUCTION

The eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes everything you need to
get started with SSL in Python.

It comes with an easy-to-use installer that includes the most recent
OpenSSL library versions in pre-compiled form, making your application
independent of OS provided OpenSSL libraries:

aware network applications as well as certificate management tools:

NEWS

This new release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes the
following updates:

New in OpenSSL
--------------

 * Updated included OpenSSL libraries from OpenSSL 1.0.1o to
   1.0.1p. See https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20150709.txt ​for a
   complete list of changes. The following fixes are relevant for
   pyOpenSSL applications:

   - CVE-2015-1793: An error in the implementation of the alternative
     certificate chain logic could allow an attacker to use a regular
     server leaf certificate as CA certificate.

Please see the product changelog for the full set of changes.

pyOpenSSL / OpenSSL Binaries Included
-------------------------------------

In addition to providing sources, we make binaries available that
include both pyOpenSSL and the necessary OpenSSL libraries for all
supported platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD, for x86 and
x64.

To simplify installation, we have uploaded a web installer to PyPI
which will automatically choose the right binary for your platform, so
a simple

    pip install egenix-pyopenssl

will get you the package with OpenSSL libraries installed. Please see
our installation instructions for details:

    http://www.egenix.com/products/python/pyOpenSSL/#Installation

We have also added .egg-file distribution versions of our eGenix.com
pyOpenSSL Distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X to the
available download options. These make setups using e.g. zc.buildout
and other egg-file based installers a lot easier.
