Cryptography - Public Key Authentication (Certificate-based, Sender Verification) and SSL - Handshake with MySql

The client is below the mysql cli but it can be another implementation.

  • You have the private key private of the client <note warning>You need to keep it private.</note>
  • The MySQL Server has the public key of the client

    -u root \
    -p password \
    -h hostIPorName \ 
    --ssl-ca=server-ca.pem \
    --ssl-cert=client-cert.pem \
