>    I have a bunch of snort sensors that log back to a central mysql server and I would like to  'secure' this traffic.  The only really sensitive info is actually the password but that's enough to make it worth doing.   I know I can do this with 'ssh db-box -L 13306:localhost:3306' (if I got that right) but it isnt ideal so how do others do this?

Recent versions of MySQL support SSL-encrypted connections natively.
