We are working on that issue now. Making pulp-admin do TLS will require a small code change similar to this one: https://github.com/pulp/pulp/pull/1244/files

Stay tuned.

Subject: [Pulp-list] Pulp 2.3.1 requires SSLv3 enabled? re: POODLE	vulnerability

Hello Pulp folks, 

I am running Pulp 2.3.1. When the SSLv3 POODLE vulnerability was reported earlier this week, I dutifully went out to my Pulp servers and disabled SSLv3 in the httpd config to mitigate the issue. But then I discovered I could no longer run pulp-admin commands. 

Can I force pulp to use TLS instead of SSLv3? 

The errors in my .pulp/admin.log file were:
