This is not a problem as currently I do not care about 3rd parties much as far as the MW installation is running in private subnet of AWS VPC hidden with tones of security on top. I'm just trying to make MW connect to RDS instance and this is my problem that it doesn't.
Running php maintenance/install.php with the options for database host, username and password executes successfully, however MW itself receives just "Access denied". So that's an issue, but not the security. Even if you remove all the SSL stuff in the below config the connection is still not there.
