MySQL is the most popular database on the web and part of the LAMP stack. But security can be a hit or miss affair with passwords kept in dot files or Bash variables, and other passwords in configuration files. Plus the default MySQL authentication system is, to be nice, a little too promiscuous. This session will cover the five major vulnerability points of a MySQL installation, how to buttress them against attack or stupidity, and how recent changes in the server product line provide 'secure by default' installation. In this era of containerized or virtualized database instances, it is too easy to leave holes open for attackers. So come learn how to secure your MySQL instances is this fast paced, funny session.
