Currently MySQL comes bundled with yaSSL to provide an option for SSL/TLS connections when using a database. An update for MySQL to use the most recent wolfSSL library (formerly CyaSSL) instead of yaSSL is under way.
Along with an increased level of security comes the potential to use progressive features offered by wolfSSL – such as ChaCha20 / Poly1305 AEAD cipher suites (ex: ECDHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305). wolfSSL will fit nicely into both Open Source and commercial applications as it is dual licensed under both GPLv2 and standard commercial license terms.
