    I don't have any intention of using .NET anytime soon but I downloaded the source code for this provider just to look at it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it had been designed so you can compile it to use with Mono if you ever want to do .NET on a Linux box. It's good to see that they thought ahead and didn't do a Windows-only version.

    This is what you want ?
    Client->.NetProvider->SSLConnection-->FirebirdServer
    There is no support for the ssl in the engine , but there are workarounds like vpn and there is one article about How to Encrypt and Compress Network Traffic between FirebirdClient and Server
