MySQL University: Securich - Security Plugin for MySQL (rerun)
By stefanhinz on Jun 09, 2010
This Thursday (June 10th,
14:00 UTC), Darren Cassar will rerun his February 25 presentation of Securich - Security Plugin
(Recording of the session failed in February; hopefully it will succeed this time.) According to Darren, the author of the plugin, Securich is an
incredibly handy and versatile tool for managing user privileges on
MySQL through the use of roles. It basically makes granting and
revoking rights a piece of cake, not to mention added security it
provides through password expiry and password history, the
customization level it permits, the fact that it runs on any MySQL 5.0
or later and it's easily deployable on any official MySQL binary,
