Chilkat Python Socket/SSL/TLS Library is a simple library that provides a high-level, easy-to-use API for TCP/IP socket programming.
Chilkat Python Socket/SSL/TLS Library supports creating secure channels w/ SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, and TLS 1.0.
Both client-side and server-side SSL/TLS is supported, including the use and verification of digital certificates.
May be used in combination with the Chilkat Diffie-Hellman component to create custom secure channels.
Provides the ability to convert already-open connections to secure connections or back.
Provides asynchronous methods for sending and receiving asynchronously. Includes easy-to-use DNS lookup methods.
Here are some key features of "Chilkat Python Socket/SSL/TLS Library":
- SSL/TLS and non-SSL/TLS programming is identical.
- Progress monitoring and abort capability for SSL and non-SSL connections.
- Asynchronously accept connections.
- Asynchronously intiate connection.
- Asynchronously send data.
- Asynchronously receive data.
- DNS Lookup (synchronous and asynchronous)
- Examine server-certificate for SSL connections.
- Optionally use client-certificate for SSL connections.
- Implements both server-side and client-side for SSL.
- Receive strings or byte data on TCP/IP sockets.
- Receive until match.
- Receive until byte.
- Receive until CRLF.
- Heartbeat events for "alive" status.
- Session logging.
- Automatic charset conversion (if desired) when sending/receiving strings.
- Build HTTP request in-memory
- SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxy support.
- HTTP proxy support.
- (backward compatibility) Removed the deprecated CkCrypt and CkFtp C++ classes. (CkCrypt2 and CkFtp2 have been the primary C++ classes for encryption and FTP for many years.)
- (backward compatibility) Removed the deprecated Chilkat.Crypt and Chilkat.Ftp .NET classes. (The primary Chilkat .NET classes for encryption and FTP have been Chilkat.Crypt2 and Chilkat.Ftp2 for many years.)
- (backward compatibility) Removed the “Blacklist” class wherever it may have been present. This class has been deprecated for many years, and the online documentation for it was removed many years ago.
- (backward compatibility, C++ API) All C++ method arguments that were pointers to objects have now become references to objects. For example, if a method argument was “CkCert *”, it is now “CkCert &”. This cause a compilation error, but the coding fix is very simple (just dereference the pointer that is passed). There are two exceptions. One is for CkXml::Search* methods where the 1st argument may be NULL...
