Re: MySQL Authentication using X.509 certificate without requiring username or password

Hello,

You will need to supply some user name when authenticating to mysql.
There is a default too, but it's always sent.
This said you can define some form of wildcard user (e.g. ''@%) to require a certificate with a certain subject fragment.

The other alternative is to look into developing your own authentication plugin.
There is an example plugin in the mysql source code.
