12.18 MySQL Enterprise Encryption Functions

Note

MySQL Enterprise Encryption is an extension included in MySQL Enterprise Edition, a commercial product. To learn more about commercial products, https://www.mysql.com/products/.

As of MySQL 5.6.21, MySQL Enterprise Edition includes a set of encryption functions based on the OpenSSL library that expose OpenSSL capabilities at the SQL level. These functions enable Enterprise applications to perform the following operations:

  • Implement added data protection using public-key asymmetric cryptography

  • Create public and private keys and digital signatures

  • Perform asymmetric encryption and decryption

  • Use cryptographic hashing for digital signing and data verification and validation

MySQL Enterprise Encryption supports the RSA, DSA, and DH cryptographic algorithms.

MySQL Enterprise Encryption is supplied as a user-defined function (UDF) library, from which individual functions can be installed individually.
