Which accounts can access this data?

Knowing which privileges a given account has is easy – just issue SHOW GRANTS FOR user@host.  But what about when you need visibility into privileges from the other direction – which accounts can access specific data?  If you’re a DBA – or perform DBA duties, regardless of your title – you may have been asked this question.  It’s an important question to ask in an audit or compliance review – but it can be a difficult question to answer.    This post will walk through how to assess this, but if you’re impatient and need answers to this question immediately, jump to the end – there’s a simple shortcut.

Things to consider

There are a few things you’ll want to consider about the implementation of the MySQL privilege system as you try to sort out who has access to certain data.

Access type

MySQL can restrict privileges based on operations – somebody who has …

Secure Java Connections by Default

MySQL Connector/Java 5.1.38 was released earlier this week, and it includes a notable improvement related to secure connections.  Here’s how the change log describes it:

When connecting to a MySQL server 5.7 instance that supports TLS, Connector/J now prefers a TLS over a plain TCP connection.

This mirrors changes made in 5.7 to the behavior of MySQL command-line clients and libmysql client library.  Coupled with the streamlined/automatic generation of TLS key material to ensure TLS availability in MySQL Server 5.7 deployments, this is an important step towards providing secure communication in default deployments.

SSL/TLS Improvements in MySQL 5.7.10

Secure communications is a core component of a robust security policy, and MySQL Server 5.7.10 – the first maintenance release of MySQL Server 5.7 – introduces needed improvements in this area.  Support for TLS has been expanded from TLSv1.0 to include TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2, default ciphers have been updated, and controls have been implemented allowing both server and client-side configuration of acceptable TLS protocol versions.  This blog post will describe the changes, the context in which these changes were made, note important differences in capabilities between Community and Enterprise versions, and outline future plans.

Context

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)  was superseded by TLS ( …

Another Idea to Help Foster a Vibrant Community: Please make all bugs public

Since MySQL recently implemented the following feature request (and discussed here and here) to help foster communication among public bugs and feature requests, and to provide a way to allow the Community to voice whether or not a bug affects them, I decided to file another feature request that I think would even further encourage communication amongst an already vibrant community, and that is to simply:

“Please make all bugs public”

http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=69642

And thanks to the new bugs feature, if you would like to see this implemented as well, please click on the …

Awesome to see the MySQL Ecosystem Flourishing

I just wanted to take a moment and thank, notice, what ever you want to call it, but share some love with all those and all things MySQL.

I read the post Let’s Celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! – MySQL Community Reception by Oracle by Oracle MySQL Group and it got me to thinking of how proud I am of (and proud to be a part of) the whole MySQL Ecosystem.

We *should* all celebrate MySQL 5.6 GA! I well remember the 3.22 and 3.23 days, and there were many folks before me already using MySQL!!!

I love to see how it has continued to grow, the ecosystem and all things MySQL, that is. MySQL is better than ever. MariaDB is better than ever. Percona Server is better than ever. You have great Support options with MySQL/Oracle, SkySQL/MariaDB, and Percona as well – not to mention numerous others. I just love the fact that everyone is flourishing, …

How I use twitter to follow the MySQL Community

Here is a perfect post to read during your holidays :-)
There are many ways to get news on the internet : blogs, rss feeds, facebook, linkedin, twitter…
What I want to talk about here is how I use twitter to follow the MySQL Community and how I stay up to date of the latest news.
I use twitter only for focus on the MySQL news and the MySQL community, that’s why I would like to share this experience with you.

Step 1 : Choose your friends

Q: What is the most complicated with Twitter ?
A: Read all the tweets that we receive every day

Of course it can be complicated and that takes a long long time…
That’s why you must choose who is your best friends carefully.

Except for the MySQL rock stars, I advise you to use TweetStats before to blindly follow anyone who tweeted a dark grigri

Congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!

I just wanted to take a moment and say congratulations to all of the 2012 Community Contributor Award Winners!

The usual suspects, Baron, Sarah, Gerardo, and Sheeri, each won, and deservedly so. All 4 contribute a great deal to the MySQL Community and ecosystem, and it is very much appreciated.

However, I was especially happy to hear that James Day was also a winner (a name everyone might not be so familiar with). But, having worked with James for 5 years, I really couldn’t say it better than Henrik Ingo already did (in his initial post of this year’s winners), so let me quote him:

“James was nominated for ‘MySQL advocacy and swimming upstream to keep people informed about bugs and other issues.’ When looking into James’ activities in the community, the panel first didn’t find much evidence to support …

MySQL Community on Freenode


I recently posted about how we, MySQL Community Managers, are trying to reach out more to the MySQL User groups and the MySQL Community.
The room has been quiet to far but it is a new room. You can find us in #MySQL_Community & #MySQL_user_groups on freenode.
A few common issues have come out that I have heard before. We as a community can work to address these concerns.

  • List of user groups
  • Few volunteers
  • Difficulty in getting good legit speakers
  • Low attendance
  • Location for meetings

Some of these concerns have been addressed by the community in the past. https://wikis.oracle.com/display/mysql/How+to+run+a+user+group
