Actually OpenSSL has some potential licensing issues when combined with
GPL code so I'd avoid it. The GNU TLS library, however, is just as easy
to integrate into existing programs - I've modified a number of apps to
use it very successfully.  Or if you want support for all manner of
crypto key management hardware devices, there's also Mozilla NSS libraries.
All support non-blocking APIs, so aside from the extra code to do the TLS
handshake and key verification, there's little modification needed to
the main codebase - eg for GNU TLS once handshake is complete you can
simply  replace read()/write() calls with gnutls_read() / gnutls_write()
