Issue in MySql SSl connection

I have enabled SSL on mysql 5.5.34 [CentOS release 6.4 (Final)]

we have two users for linux : "root" and "admin"

and 2 users for mysql : "root" and "mysqladmin"

I also have created one mysql user called sslclient using below command:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO sslclient@'localhost' REQUIRE SSL;

I had to do "chown mysql.mysql /etc/mysqlssl/*" and "chmod 440 /etc/mysqlssl/*" to enable SSL

Made sure that SSL is enabled by doing "show variables like '%ssl%'"

| Variable_name | Value |
| have_openssl | YES |
| have_ssl | YES |
| ssl_ca | /etc/mysqlssl/ca-cert.pem |
| ssl_capath | |
| ssl_cert | /etc/mysqlssl/server-cert.pem |
| ssl_cipher | |
| ssl_key | /etc/mysqlssl/server-key.pem |

We are facing two issues:

1) When I try to connect mysql using (from linux "admin" user)

mysql -u sslclient --ssl-ca=/etc/mysqlssl/ca-cert.pem

gives me error : "ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error: Failed to set ciphers to use"

2) I can connect mysql (from linux "root" user) only using mysql "root" user, not using any other user say "mysqladmin" or "sslclient", i.e.

"mysql -u mysqladmin" gives me below error

"Access denied for user 'mysqladmin'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

Would there be any relation between both the issues?

What could be the cause and/or solution for above issue?
