Hi Ed,

David Mertz has written a series of 'Network programming with the Twisted
framework' articles that you might be interested in, especially Part 4:


And even if you're not going to use Twisted, the resources at the bottom
of that tutorial refer to background on SSL, and should be useful as
background information.  I'm not really knowledgable in this area, so I'm
hoping that the others on Tutor will be able to point you toward other
secure programming resources.

Good luck to you!
