  • Password validation plugin API (MDEV-6431).
  • simple_password_check password validation plugin. It can enforce a minimum password length and guarantee that a password contains at least a specified number of uppercase and lowercase letters, digits, and punctuation characters.
  • cracklib_password_check password validation plugin. It only allows passwords that are strong enough to pass CrackLib test. This is the same test that pam_cracklib.so does, installed by default on many Linux distributions.


  • For a complete list of security vulnerabilities (CVEs) fixed across all versions of MariaDB, see the Security Vulnerabilities Fixed in MariaDB page.
  • Enhance security using special compilation options - MariaDB is now compiled with security hardening options by default. It is an additional protection layer that makes new, yet unknown, security vulnerabilities more difficult to exploit. (MDEV-5730)
