    Unanswered: Need help with security issue


    I connect with a remote MySQL database with a program that uses ODBC.

    I need to enable security to prevent that someone can intercept the communication between my computer and the DB and read the data I am requesting to the DB.

    I've heard that SSL encripts the connection between client and DB, and then if somebody intercepts the communication he can't read it because is encrypted.

    I have no idea of how to enable SSL in my connection with the DB. I don't know what I have to do. Can anybody help me?

    You need to compile MySQL with openssl.
    Read the documentation :
