For several planned features and security improvements, at least OpenSSL 1.0.2 is required. OpenSSL 1.1.0 is preferred to test all new features. See discussion https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2018-January/151718.html . However Travis CI uses Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which comes with OpenSSL 1.0.1.

To address the problem, CPython has either to compile and install a local copy of OpenSSL, move to container-based testing or use a different CI provider with more recent infrastructure.

I have created a PR that uses an improved version of my multissl test helper to compile and install the latest copy of OpenSSL 1.1.0. The build is cached by Travis. I *think* it is necessary to build OpenSSL in master so PRs can use the cache. A daily Travis cron job on master should do the trick.
