Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to setup SSL encryption for my MySQL servers to let users encrypt their connections without being themselves fully authenticated (like an anonymous access, but still encrypted). I would like to add more security by this way for clients requesting directly my servers.

I have succeeded into encrypting the connection, but I have no idea whether this is possible without client certificates, and neither google or mysql doc are of much help. I just would like to know if this is even possible; (and if so, some advices on how to do it would be highly appreciated);

I am working on debian systems (Wheezy, MySQL version:5.5.29).

Many thanks!

Client certificates are not required unless you set the REQUIRE X509 option for the account.
