"""Create a new HTTPTLSConnection.
For client authentication, use one of these argument
- username, password (SRP)
- username, sharedKey (shared-key)
- certChain, privateKey (certificate)
For server authentication, you can either rely on the
implicit mutual authentication performed by SRP or
shared-keys, or you can do certificate-based server
authentication with one of these argument combinations:
- cryptoID[, protocol] (requires cryptoIDlib)
- x509Fingerprint
- x509TrustList[, x509CommonName] (requires cryptlib_py)
Certificate-based server authentication is compatible with
SRP or certificate-based client authentication. It is
not compatible with shared-keys.
The constructor does not perform the TLS handshake itself, but
simply stores these arguments for later. The handshake is
performed only when this class needs to connect with the
server. Thus you should be prepared to handle TLS-specific
exceptions when calling methods inherited from
L{httplib.HTTPConnection} such as request(), connect(), and
send(). See the client handshake functions in
L{tlslite.TLSConnection.TLSConnection} for details on which
exceptions might be raised.
@type host: str
@param host: Server to connect to.
@type port: int
@param port: Port to connect to.
@type username: str
@param username: SRP or shared-key username. Requires the
'password' or 'sharedKey' argument.
@type password: str
@param password: SRP password for mutual authentication.
Requires the 'username' argument.
@type sharedKey: str
@param sharedKey: Shared key for mutual authentication.
Requires the 'username' argument.
@type certChain: L{tlslite.X509CertChain.X509CertChain} or
@param certChain: Certificate chain for client authentication.
Requires the 'privateKey' argument. Excludes the SRP or
shared-key related arguments.

@param privateKey: Private key for client authentication.
Requires the 'certChain' argument. Excludes the SRP or

exclusive with the 'x509...' arguments.

@param x509Fingerprint: Hex-encoded X.509 fingerprint for
server authentication. Mutually exclusive with the 'cryptoID'

@type x509TrustList: list of L{tlslite.X509.X509}
@param x509TrustList: A list of trusted root certificates. The
other party must present a certificate chain which extends to
one of these root certificates. The cryptlib_py module must be
installed to use this parameter. Mutually exclusive with the
'cryptoID' and 'x509Fingerprint' arguments.
@type x509CommonName: str
@param x509CommonName: The end-entity certificate's 'CN' field
must match this value. For a web server, this is typically a
server name such as ''. Mutually exclusive with

the ciphersuites, certificate types, and SSL/TLS versions
offered by the client.
