Hi all.
I want to connect to a database but using a secure manner.

Typically security in the data layer would be infrastructure security, rather than code-based security. i.e. an app server running on a properly administered server connecting over the LAN to a DB on a simmilarly properly administered machine. In which case implementing SSL/TLS is an unecessary overhead.
