Do you have set up SSL on your MySQL installation? If not you should do it to use MySQL over SSL. MySQL docs have tutorial for doing so: Generating OpenSSL certs. Setting Up SSL with MySQL.

In case this is already done, you need to provide certs to ODBC setup. You can learn how to do it in MySQL ODBC guide. It will explain you how and what’s needed to do so.
