MySQL (#mysql) currently comes bundled with yaSSL to provide an option for SSL/TLS connections when using a database. A patch for securing MySQL with the wolfSSL embedded SSL/TLS library is available for MySQL version 8.0.0 here https://github.com/wolfSSL/mysql-patch.
Along with an increased level of security comes the potential to use progressive features offered by wolfSSL – such as TLS 1.3 and ChaCha20 / Poly1305 AEAD cipher suites (ex: ECDHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305). Another great feature is that wolfSSL cryptography is FIPS 140-2 validated! Additionally, these features of wolfSSL are not mutually exclusive. For example, the FIPS 140-2 validation can be combined with wolfSSL’s support for TLS 1.3 for a lethal combination of security. The change from yaSSL to wolfSSL will fit nicely into both Open Source and commercial applications, as it is dual licensed under both GPLv2 and standard commercial license terms.
