I do know that Mysql supports SSL... somehow this got discounted early in the discussion, perhaps mistakenly?
I believe the thinking was that although MySQL claims to support SSL,it does in fact make a pretty bodge of it, and a more effective approach is to pipe MySQL traffic through an encrypted tunnel.
Personally I just use IPSec for this, but people might also like toconsider stunnel (http://www.stunnel.org/) or OpenVPN (http://openvpn.net/)
