Creating an SSL connection w/ MySQL Workbench

I am a volunteer software developer working on a MySQL based content management system for a non-profit. I have been struggling for some time to establish a connection between MySQL Workbench and our AWS server.

I am able to establish a SSL terminal connection to the server with PuTTY and I am able to also do FTP with the server. I have the private and public keys for the SSL access. I have root access to the server, but the MySQL database was set up by someone else and my command line skills w/ MySQL are not so good.

I have MySQL Workbench installed on my computer, and it looks like I can set up a SSL connection between MySQL Workbench and our server, but I have not been successful in doing this in the past. (I just recently discovered these forums.)

Can I use my existing SSL keys or do I need to create new keys? I am not very knowledgeable about the security stuff, so any assistance to help me get this connection finally set up would be greatly appreciated.
