Understanding & using authentication plugins
In our ecosystem, we have the commercial MySQL Enterprise PAM/Active Directory plugins (which are not the focus of this talk). But we also have the PAM authentication plugin, two versions by Percona and MariaDB - find out what's different and how to use them including connecting against an LDAP service.
New in MariaDB 10.1 (and to be backported to 5.5, 10.0 too) will be the Kerberos authentication plugin that will also be able to work with MySQL/Percona Server.
Quickly learn how to integrate PAM and Kerberos plugins into your workflow.
