MySQL Data at Rest Encryption

I am trying to use MySQL Data at Rest encryption (table space) with keyring.
I have been successful in encrypting a table and creating the keyring file in the default location.
Right now I see that the keyring file location is hard coded in my.ini file
However for best practices I should not store the keying file in the same server (correct?).
If my application runs on a different server, how do I ‘pass’ the keyring file to the mysql server instance (running on a different server) before I start using the database features? I do not see any documentation on how to do this.
