Disable SSL/TLS


MariaDB SkySQL supports disabling SSL/TLS as an option:

  • By default, MariaDB SkySQL services feature data-in-transit encryption.

  • When the "Disable SSL/TLS" feature is enabled, traffic to a SkySQL service is performed in the clear. This may severely impact the confidentiality, integrity, and security of your data.

  • This feature is available for transactions topologies on AWS and GCP.

  • MariaDB recommends use of this feature only when also using AWS PrivateLink or GCP VPC.


  • Distributed Transactions

  • Replicated Transactions

  • Single Node Transactions
