If you want to enforce that all connections on your database use SSL, consider making a new authentication method as follows:
create authentication sslhash method 'hash' host tls '0.0.0.0/0';
grant authentication sslhash to public;
Note: You may need to reboot your cluster if this is your first authentication record.
