For a list of all new variables, see System Variables Added in MariaDB 10.1 and Status Variables Added in MariaDB 10.1. Some of these, and other variable-related changes, include:


  • 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 does, installed by default on many Linux distributions.
  • ed25519 authentication plugin for traditional password-based authentication. A new, secure alternative to the old mysql_native_password plugin.


  • 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)
