6.5.4 MySQL Enterprise Encryption Function Descriptions

MySQL Enterprise Encryption functions have these general characteristics:

Several of the functions take an encryption algorithm argument. The following table summarizes the supported algorithms by function.

Table 6.18 Supported Algorithms by Function


Although you can create keys using any of the RSA, DSA, or DH encryption algorithms, other functions that take key arguments might accept only certain types of keys. For example, asymmetric_encrypt() and asymmetric_decrypt() accept only RSA keys.

The following descriptions describe the calling sequences for MySQL Enterprise Encryption functions. For additional examples and discussion, see Section 6.5.2, “MySQL Enterprise Encryption Usage and Examples”.
