    Replace httplib.HTTPSConnection in unittests
    SSL Verification is from now on enabled by default for the
    TestOpenStackClient. So far no unittests was making actively use of
    Intention is to reduce noise of audits/scanners which look for Python 2.x
    httplib.HTTPSConnection missing SSL verification. By completely abandoning the use
    of httplib.HTTPSConnection.

Bug description:
  Grant Murphy from Red Hat reported usage of httplib.HTTPSConnection
  objects. In Python 2.x those do not perform CA checks so client
  connections are vulnerable to MiM attacks.

  The following files use httplib.HTTPSConnection :

  AFAICT HTTPSConnection does not validate server certificates and
  should be avoided. This is fixed in Python 3, however in 2.X no
  validation occurs. I suspect this is also applicable to most OpenStack
  modules that make HTTPS client calls.
