How to Setup Self Signed SSL/TLS on MySQL • Website for Students

This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to enable self-signed SSL/TLS certificates and connect to MySQL Server via SSL connection on Ubuntu Linux 20.04 | 18.04.

By default when you install MySQL server, it will only allow connections from the local system for users with the correct credentials regardless of transport protocol.

If you want to add another layer of security, you can enable SSL/TLS certificate settings and force all users to connect securely.

For this tutorials, we’re going to be creating a self signed certificate to configure with MySQL.

Best MySQL DigitalOcean Performance – ScaleGrid vs. DigitalOcean Managed Databases

HTML to Markdown

MySQL is the all-time number one open source database in the world, and a staple in RDBMS space. DigitalOcean is quickly building its reputation as the developers cloud by providing an affordable, flexible and easy to use cloud platform for developers to work with. MySQL on DigitalOcean is a natural fit, but what’s the best way to deploy your cloud database? In this post, we are going to compare the top two providers, DigitalOcean Managed Databases for MySQL vs. ScaleGrid MySQL hosting on DigitalOcean.

At a glance – TLDR
ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 1st pointCompare Throughput
ScaleGrid averages almost 40% higher throughput over DigitalOcean for MySQL, with up to 46% higher throughput in write-intensive workloads. Read now

ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 2nd pointCompare Latency
On average, ScaleGrid achieves almost 30% lower latency over DigitalOcean for the same deployment configurations. Read now

ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 3rd pointCompare Pricing
ScaleGrid provides 30% more storage on average vs. DigitalOcean for MySQL at the same affordable price. Read now

MySQL DigitalOcean Performance Benchmark
In this benchmark, we compare equivalent plan sizes between ScaleGrid MySQL on DigitalOcean and DigitalOcean Managed Databases for MySQL. We are going to use a common, popular plan size using the below configurations for this performance benchmark:

ScaleGridDigitalOceanInstance TypeMedium: 4 vCPUsMedium: 4 vCPUsMySQL Version8.0.208.0.20RAM8GB8GBSSD140GB115GBDeployment TypeStandaloneStandaloneRegionSF03SF03SupportIncludedBusiness-level support included with account sizes over $500/monthMonthly Price$120$120

As you can see above, ScaleGrid and DigitalOcean offer the same plan configurations across this plan size, apart from SSD where ScaleGrid provides over 20% more storage for the same price.

To ensure the most accurate results in our performance tests, we run the benchmark four times for each comparison to find the average performance across throughput and latency over read-intensive workloads, balanced workloads, and write-intensive workloads.

Throughput
In this benchmark, we measure MySQL throughput in terms of queries per second (QPS) to measure our query efficiency. To quickly summarize the results, we display read-intensive, write-intensive and balanced workload averages below for 150 threads for ScaleGrid vs. DigitalOcean MySQL:

MongoDB SSL with Self-Signed Certificates in C#

When deploying MongoDB in production, it is strongly recommended that you use an SSL-enabled geo-distributed replica-set configuration for maximum security and availability. ScaleGrid provides you two options for setting up SSL.

One option is purchasing your own CA-signed SSL certificates and configuring them on the MongoDB server. If your application connects to the production database over a public network, do reach out to [email protected] to learn more about this.

But by default, we configure self-signed certificates for SSL when creating nodes for a new cluster. This avoids extra costs, and can be equally secure when correctly configured. But this does mean that your MongoDB driver needs some help to validate the certificate chain.

Configure PMM2 For Azure MySQL Database With SSL

Registering AzureDB without SSL in PMM

If you are registering a normal MySQL database you will run the below command & it will be registered.

server=db-server.mysql.database.azure.com
[email protected]
monitorpwd=xxxxxxxx
server_name=MyProdDB1pmm-admin add mysql --username=$monitoruser --password=$monitorpwd --host=$server --service-name=$server_name --query-source=perfschema

SQLCopy

DB connectivity with SSL

As per the link provided below you can download the generic certificate to connect to the Azure database. Using that you can connect to MySQL even with verify_ca mode too.

Successful connection with SSL
mysql --user=$monitoruser --password=$monitorpwd --host=$serverUnsuccessful connection with verify ca SSLmysql --user=$monitoruser --password=$monitorpwd --host=$server --ssl-mode=VERIFY_CA
ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error: CA certificate is required if ssl-mode is VERIFY_CA or VERIFY_IDENTITYSuccessful connection with verify ca SSL
mysql --user=$monitoruser --password=$monitorpwd --host=$server --ssl-mode=VERIFY_CA --ssl-ca=azure-ca.crt

Error Registering SSL DB

For SSL you need to supply the parameter -tls, however, that also throws an error.

Generate new SSL

Based on the bug raised, I found that we need SSL client key & client certificate generated separately. I used the below command to generate new files. I have highlighted the one I used later.
