Protecting MySQL network traffic
25 April - 3:50 PM - 4:40 PM @ Ballroom B
50 minutes conference
If your MySQL connections travel trough your network and maybe even over the internet then there are many possibilities where someone could eavesdrop. Protecting this with SSL (or TLS actually) is the obvious solution, but there are many SSL related settings. And you need a certificate, which you could buy or generate one yourself. I'll cover a bit of authentication where it relates to SSL. I'll demonstrate how to set up SSL and why you should pick certain settings. I'll cover multiple attack scenarios and I'll show you how secure the non-SSL protocol is. Some alternatives to SSL will also be covered.
