Connect your distributed EOP installation to an Amazon RDS database instance, via an encrypted TLS connection.
- Create a TrustStore containing certificates employed by Amazon RDS as detailed here.
- Copy this TrustStore file to each of your EOP nodes in a location that the contrast-server process will be able to read them from (e.g. under
- Configure the JDBC URL on each of your EOP nodes to require SSL (TLS), by modifying the value of the
jdbc.urlparameter in the
database.propertiesfile using the encrypted properties editor as documented here) as follows:
Note: Due to the ESAPI encryption of the database properties file, some special characters are not supported in the TrustStore password. Please avoid using
&characters in the password for this reason.

Quit and save the changes. Restart your contrast-server process.
Note: If restricting the database to only accept TLSv1.2 connections it may be necessary (depending on the Java version in use) to additionally force that protocol in the connection string (
jdbc.url). For EOP installations lower than 3.8.10 you can do so by adding
enabledTLSProtocols=TLSv1.2. For EOP versions 3.8.10 or greater (which use the mariadb driver) use
