MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.6 and higher 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
