6.4.4 OpenSSL Versus yaSSL

MySQL can be compiled using OpenSSL or yaSSL, both of which enable encrypted connections based on the OpenSSL API:

OpenSSL and yaSSL offer the same basic functionality, but additional features are available in MySQL distributions compiled using OpenSSL: OpenSSL supports a wider range of encryption ciphers from which to choose for the --ssl-cipher option, and supports the --ssl-capath option. See Section 6.4.2, “Command Options for Encrypted Connections”.
