SSL with other Clients than the original MariaDB-client?

It seems to be that there is a difference in handling the SSL handshake at the MariaDB-Server (5.2 or below) in contrast to the Mysql-Server 5.1. All JDBC-Clients can sucessfully connect to the Mysql-Server 5.1 via SSL, but with MariaDB-Server not. Without SSL all JDBC-Clients can sucessfully connect to MariaDB.

Both server run with the same CA-, Server- and Client-Certificates and I have made the following tests (all with MariaDB Server 5.2.10 and also tested with 5.1.60 from the Deb-Repository):

  • Mysql-Client (5.1) cannot connect to MariaDB Server: "ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error"
  • Mysql-connector/J cannot connect to MariaDB Server: TLSv1 Handshake fails with "unexpected message" after ClientHello
  • Drizzle JDBC cannot connect to MariaDB-Server: TLSv1 Handshake fails also with "unexpected message" after ClientHello
  • Original MariaDB-Client (5.2) can connect easily via SSL with the CA-Certificate to MariaDB-Server.

It seems to be a general communication problem in the SSL-Handshake after ClientHello.

Is it a bug or a feature?

This bug is now fixed in 5.1 and later versions. The fix should be part of the next release (next 5.1, next 5.2, etc).
