Hello, I am running cPanel / WHM on a small VPS and want to use Amazon RDS for the MySQL database on certain sites. I've been reading about setting up secure SSL connections to RDS and contacted my host for help setting it up. A senior administrator responded and told me that it wasn't necessary to set up SSL because MySQL connections are encrypted by default. This doesn't seem to agree with what I'm reading, but since I'm nowhere near an expert with MySQL I'm looking for some advice. Could it be correct that I don't need to set up an SSL connection to RDS to protect the data in transit?
