The annual MariaDB user conference will be taking place February 25-27, 2019, at New York City's Conrad Hotel. For the first time, the event will span three days, which means more room for new topics. We want to hear your ideas – submit your speaking proposal by October 31, 2018!
Financial Network, Inc. (FNI) was looking to evolve its credit strategy and loan-origination services after more than 30 years in business – but the "astronomical" fees they were paying to use Oracle Database were keeping them from it. They needed to move on, and chose MariaDB to power their growth. Learn how (and why) they did it.
In this blog, we present a way to move an existing database first to an encrypted state and then, how to move your database to an unencrypted state.
To properly prevent some columns from being accessed, the masking filter that was introduced in MariaDB MaxScale 2.1 must be used together with the database firewall filter. In version 2.1, it was somewhat cumbersome to setup the database firewall filter for use together with the masking filter. With the recently released MariaDB MaxScale 2.2 (GA), we have introduced new features that makes the combined use of the masking filter and the database firewall filter much easier.
The recently found security vulnerabilities in various processors require modifications in operating systems. Those modifications make some operations more expensive, leading to a slowdown of running applications and/or services. Here we look at the impact on MariaDB Server.
This blog post will explore the setup of an environment using self-signed OpenSSL certificates to make it safe enough to replicate data between the multiple backend database servers and also, we’ll show you how to setup the communication between MariaDB MaxScale and the backend.
Data breaches are expensive. Between business disruption, loss of customer confidence, legal costs, regulatory fines and any direct losses that may result from a ransomware attack, for instance, the effects can add up to millions. The best defense is a good offense. In this blog, we'll look at five key practices to keep your database secure: protect, audit, manage, update and encrypt.
In this blog, we show you how you can use MariaDB MaxScale’s masking filter for sensitive user data masking.
The 2.1.3 GA release of MariaDB MaxScale, introduces the following key features for the secure setup of MariaDB MaxScale Binlog Server:
The binlog cache files in the MaxScale host can now be encrypted.
MaxScale binlog server also uses SSL in communication with the master and the slave servers.
This blog covers how the binary log encryption works in MariaDB Server and in MariaDB MaxScale.
