key-based authentication for MariaDB 10.3 on centos6
I am trying to figure out how to do key-based authentication to MariaDB 10.3 on centos6.
I've been able to use pam and the pam_unix.so module to authentication by OS user but I haven't been able to configure MariaDB to use ssh keys. Is that possible? Is there any documentation detailing how to set that up? I did see a knowledge base article explicitly stating the pam enabled ssh passphrase authentication but no additional information on how to enable that.
Also, I had to run MariaDB as root user for pam_unix.so to work. Is that a "feature"?
Thanks for any insight!
