Remote SSL Connections to MySQL

You can enable access to your MySQL database securely with SSL. You're required to provide a set of trusted IP addresses before your MySQL server will be exposed to the Internet. Only SSL connections are permitted.

Trusted sources for remote MySQL connections

Add your trusted sources from the Database > Security tab. After providing your IP addresses, you can download your certificate files which you'll use to connect securely to your database server.

SSL certificate files are unique to the instance. These files do not change and are persistent until the instance is terminated. Adding or removing trusted IP addresses won't change the certificate.

SSL Certificate Files

Get your SSL certificate files by going to Database Settings.
