create a CA for the certs, import the public key of the CA on all the
boxes. it will save you headaches. don't use selfsigned certs

i've used EasyRSA to create the CA and it's certificates

re create the endpoints using ssl, some downtime will be needed during

the CN on the cert must match the hostname in the endpoints

python ssl performance is not great, if you have high traffic you will
need something external (apache, bigip, nginx?) to terminate ssl traffic
