Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for MariaDB supports encrypted SSL/TLS connections to the database instances. Starting today, you can enforce SSL/TLS client connections to your Amazon RDS for MariaDB database instance for enhanced transport layer security. To enforce SSL/TLS, enable the require_secure_transport parameter (disabled by default) through the Amazon RDS Management Console, the CLI or the API. When the require_secure_transport parameter is enabled, a database client will be able to connect to the RDS for MariaDB instance only if it can establish an encrypted connection.

require_secure_transport parameter is supported on RDS for MariaDB versions 10.5 and higher. To learn more about enforcing encrypted client connections using require_secure_transport parameter, please refer to the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Amazon RDS makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale database deployments in the cloud. Amazon RDS is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Create or update a fully managed Amazon RDS database in the Amazon RDS Management Console.
