I want to connect to Amazon's RDS MySql service using MySql Workbench 5.2.33 running on Windows. I want to connect using SSL.
How do I do this?
How can I verify that I am connecting using SSL?

Open Connect to database. In the Advanced tab, enable "Use SSL if available", and point "SSL CA File" to the SSL root certificate of the MySQL server (in PEM format).
The SSL CA setting is required.
Run the following query:
show status like 'ssl_cipher';
Ssl_cipher value is non-empty, the connection is secured using SSL.
Alternatively, use a packet sniffer such as Wireshark.
