Datapower Encrypted/SSL Datasource support for SQL Server

Datapower SQL Server Datasource is unable to connect to AWS RDS SQL Server when "forced encryption" is enabled on the SQL DB Server. We have tried to connect via SSL Proxy Server, as recommended in IBM case TS001411802. This does not appear to support AWS SQL Server RDS server negotiation/connections. Please provide enhancement to support this.
