key-based authentication for MariaDB 10.3 on centos6

I am trying to figure out how to do key-based authentication to MariaDB 10.3 on centos6.

I've been able to use pam and the module to authentication by OS user but I haven't been able to configure MariaDB to use ssh keys. Is that possible? Is there any documentation detailing how to set that up? I did see a knowledge base article explicitly stating the pam enabled ssh passphrase authentication but no additional information on how to enable that.

Also, I had to run MariaDB as root user for to work. Is that a "feature"?

Thanks for any insight!
