TLSLite is very very nice. I've used it to write an EAP-supporting 
radius server (for debugging only, real people should use FreeRadius) 
incidentally in Twisted.

In particular I find the TLSLite/Twisted integration nice because of the 
protocol wrapping approach (rather than magic methods and __class__ 
fiddles on the transport). The TLSConnection objects also make it quite 
a bit easier to get at some of the TLS-related items. The fallback to 
pure-python can be handy in a pinch too.

It's somewhat a shame it's public domain rather than an explicit license.
