MySQL 8.0: Security

MySQL 8.0: Security

 25 April - 5:15 PM - 5:40 PM @ Ballroom C
Experience level: 
25 minutes conference


This session provides the developer centric view on MySQL 8.0 security. MySQL 8.0 is continuing in the direction set by MySQL 5.7: to be secure by default. The security development team has added quite a few interesting features to the core MySQL server, like for example SQL roles or making the ACL statements atomic.We will discuss the roles implementation and consider some of the interesting possibilities it provides. We are also working on re-architecting the security related parts of the server and this allows us to come up with modern pluggable APIs that allow for modern and extensible server, like e.g. the keyring API or the extensions to the audit API we did in 5.7.
