Open Source Database Community Blog: The Story So Far

Recently, we initiated a new project, the Open Source Database Community Blog. One way to think of this is as an online, year round version of the Percona Live conferences. If you have a story to tell, an experience to share, or a lesson to be learned send it along. As long as it’s related to open source database software, their management and application. That’s right. Not just Percona software. Any open source database software of all formats.

Unlike Percona Live, though, we are not limited by time or space. All submissions are welcome as long as they follow some simple guidelines.

We have already had some excellent posts, and in case this is news to you, here’s a recap:

This is a major change to the way metadata is stored and used within the server, and MariaDB doesn’t have an equivalent feature. Implementing this feature could mark the end of datafile-level compatibility between …

Porting this Oracle MySQL feature to MariaDB would be great ;-)

Oracle has done a great technical work with MySQL. Specifically a nice job has been done around security. There is one useful feature that exists in Oracle MySQL and that currently does not exist in MariaDB. Oracle MySQL offers the possibility from within the server to generate asymetric key pairs. It is then possible use ...continue reading "Porting this Oracle MySQL feature to MariaDB would be great ;-)"

The connection_control plugin : Keeping brute force attack in check

To quote book of all knowledge:

In cryptography, a brute-force attack consists of an attacker trying many
passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing correctly.
The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases
until the correct one is found.
