SSLSocket.new(io) => aSSLSocket
SSLSocket.new(io, ctx) => aSSLSocket

Creates a new SSL socket from io which must be a real ruby object (not an IO-like object that responds to read/write).

If ctx is provided the SSL Sockets initial params will be taken from the context.

The OpenSSL::Buffering module provides additional IO methods.

This method will freeze the SSLContext if one is provided; however, session management is still allowed in the frozen SSLContext.

ssl.accept => self
