ProxySQL Improves MySQL SSL Connections

In this blog post, we’ll look at how ProxySQL improves MySQL SSL connection performance.

When deploying MySQL with SSL, the main concern is that the initial handshake causes significant overhead if you are not using connection pools (i.e., mysqlnd-mux with PHP, mysql.connector.pooling in Python, etc.). Closing and making new connections over and over can greatly impact on your total query response time. A customer and colleague recently educated me that although you can improve SSL encryption/decryption performance with the AES-NI hardware extension on modern Intel processors, the actual overhead when creating SSL connections comes from the handshake when multiple roundtrips between the server and client are needed.

With ProxySQL’s support for SSL on its backend connections and connection pooling, we can have it sit in front of any application, on the same server (illustrated below):

Webinar Wednesday August 2, 2017: MySQL Disk Encryption with LUKS

Join Percona’s, Senior Architect, Matthew Boehm as he presents MySQL Disk Encryption with LUKS on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, at 1:00 pm PDT / 4:00 pm EDT (UTC-7).

Clients require strong security measures for PCI, HIPAA or PHI. You must encrypt MySQL “at rest” to satisfy the data managed under these standards. InnoDB’s built-in encryption features work, but there are some caveats to that solution.

In this talk, you’ll see how to encrypt your entire disk to protect everything from data, redo logs and binary logs.

How We Encrypt Data In MySQL With Go

A SaaS product needs to use security measures you might not ordinarily use in an on-premises solution. In particular, it’s important that all sensitive data be secured. Encryption plays an important role in information security. At VividCortex, we encrypt data in-flight and at-rest, so your sensitive data is never exposed.

We use Go and MySQL extensively at VividCortex and thought other Go programmers might be interested to see how we’ve integrated encryption into our services layer (APIs). (And if you'd like to learn more about programming with Go in general, please take a look at our free ebook The Ultimate Guide to Building Database-Driven Apps with Go.)
