MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Creating SSL and RSA Certificates and Keys

7.4.6 Creating SSL and RSA Certificates and Keys

The following discussion describes how to create the files required for SSL and RSA support in MySQL. File creation can be performed using facilities provided by MySQL itself, or by invoking the openssl command directly.

SSL certificate and key files enable MySQL to support secure connections using SSL. See Section 7.4.4, “Configuring MySQL to Use Secure Connections”.

RSA key files enable MySQL to support secure password exchange over unencrypted connections for accounts authenticated by the sha256_password plugin. See Section 7.5.1.4, “The SHA-256 Authentication Plugin”.
