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 [...]

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.

Conference review Percona Live Santa Clara 2018

Percona Live Santa Clara, an annual event where open source database users, developers and enthusiasts come together, was held in April at the Santa-Clara convention centre. Pythian was well represented once more with no less than five presentations and a total of nine attendees.

This year the conference was condensed to two days of breakout sessions and one day of tutorials. Though it was shorter in length, the organizers broadened their horizons by including not only MySQL and MongoDB tracks, but this year they even put together a full PostgreSQL track. Moving from MySQL only to multiple technologies, inspired this year’s tagline: polyglot persistence conference. The increase in number of sessions allowed for a lot more options, but the condensed schedule made it much harder to choose which sessions to attend!

My observation from last year’s …

dbdeployer GA and semantic versioning

dbdeployer went into release candidate status a few weeks ago. Since then, I added no new features, but a lot of tests. The test suite now runs 3,000+ tests on MacOS and a bit more on Linux, for a grand total of 6,000+ tests that need to run at least twice: once with concurrency enabled and once without. I know that testing can't prove the absence of bugs, but I am satisfied with the results, since all this grinding has allowed me to find several bugs and fix them.

In this framework, I felt that dbdeployer could exit candidate status and get to version 1.0. This happened on March 26th. An immediate side effect of this change is that from this point on, dbdeployer must adhere to the semantic versioning principles:

A version number is made of Major, Minor, and Revision. When changes are applied, the following happens:

MySQL security for real users


Security features overview

One of Oracle's tenets is the focus on security. For this reason, when it took over the stewardship of MySQL, it started addressing the most common issues. It was not quick acting, but we have seen real progress:

  1. MySQL 5.7 has removed the anonymous accounts, which was the greatest threat to security. Because of those accounts, and the default privileges granted to them, users without any privileges could access the "test" database and do serious damage. Additionally, because of the way the privilege engine evaluates accounts, anonymous users could hijack legitimate users, by preventing them to work properly.
  2. The "root" account now comes with a password defined during …
