MySQL Security: Armoring Your Dolphin

From the operating system to the application layer, potential security holes and data leaks exist at every turn, and it's not simply enough to close one or two of them and then hope for the best. A proper data security strategy involves both proper risk analysis and "defense in depth," and during this presentation we will examine both of these elements on multiple levels in a MySQL context. Topics to be covered include:

  • Basic security concepts
  • Security above the MySQL layer (network, hardware, OS, etc.)
  • Tips for application design
  • A more secure MySQL configuration
  • Security-related changes in MySQL 5.6

Attendees will leave this presentation knowing where to start when identifying vulnerability in their systems.
