mysql_ssl_set - Sets TLS/SSL options
#include <mysql.h> my_bool mysql_ssl_set(MYSQL *mysql, const char *key, const char *cert, const char *ca, const char *capath, const char *cipher)
Used for establishing a secure TLS connection. It must be called before attempting to use mysql_real_connect(3). TLS support must be enabled in the client library in order for the function to have any effect.
NULL can be used for an unused parameter. Always returns zero.
mysql- a mysql handle, which was previously allocated by mysql_init(3).
key- path to the key file.
cert- path to the certificate file.
ca- path to the certificate authority file.
capath- path to the directory containing the trusted TLS CA certificates in PEM format.
cipherlist of permitted (SSLv3, TLSv1.0 or TLSv1.2) cipher suites to use for TLS encryption.
- mysql_real_connect(3) will return an error if attempting to connect and TLS is incorrectly set up.
- Even if Connector/C supports TLSv1.3 protocol, it is not possible yet to specify TLSv1.3 cipher suites via
