Speaker: Otto Kekäläinen

Room: Menzies 9
Time: Jul 05 (Tue), 16:15
In this talk I'll explain how socket authentication in MariaDB works and how it makes the life of system administrators easier when they can do all maintenance as root, without the need of additional passwords. Life without extra passwords is also more secure, as there is less to leak or loose. Socket authentication in MariaDB is by default enabled in Debian.
