This package provides a high level object oriented wrapper around
libgnutls, as well as low level bindings to the GNUTLS types and
functions via ctypes. The high level wrapper hides the details of
accessing the GNUTLS library via ctypes behind a set of classes
that encapsulate GNUTLS sessions, certificates and credentials and
expose them to Python applications using a simple API.
The package also includes a Twisted interface that has seamless
intergration with Twisted, providing connectTLS and listenTLS
methods on the Twisted reactor once imported (the methods are
automatically attached to the reactor by simply importing the
GNUTLS Twisted interface module).
