24.4 MySQL Enterprise Encryption Overview

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
