Is TLS 1.2 supported in MySQL 5.7 community build

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

As a security best practice, I am exploring enforcing TLS 1.2 communication in MySQL 5.7.33 in my environment.

From what I searched in internet, I could see TLS 1.2 is supported in MySQL 5.7 builds which are based on openssl. Enterprise edition which is based on openssl supports TLS 1.2 and community build which is based on yassl does not support TLS 1.2 unless until we compile source code with openssl.

I am not getting a concrete answer. Is TLS 1.2 supported in MySQL 5.7 Community edition? If not, is there any work around?

Is there any blog that I can refer for implementation of TLS 1.2 . Please suggest.
