Securich - Security Plugin for MySQL

This Thursday (February 25th, 13:00 UTC - way earlier than usual!),
Darren Cassar will present Securich - Security Plugin for MySQL.
According to Darren, the author of the plugin, "Securich is an
incredibly handy and versatile tool for managing user privileges on
MySQL through the use of roles. It basically makes granting and revoking
rights a piece of cake, not to mention added security it provides
through password expiry and password history, the customization level it
permits, the fact that it runs on any MySQL 5.0 or later and it's easily
deployable on any official MySQL binary, platform independent."

For MySQL University sessions, point your browser to this page:

You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may register for a
Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (Dimdim is the conferencing
system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It provides integrated
voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session recording, and more.)

MySQL University is a free educational online program for
engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not
just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you
can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime
after the session.

Here's the schedule for the upcoming weeks:

* March 4: MySQL Column Databases (Robin Schumacher)
* March 11: Improving MySQL Full-Text Search (Kristofer Pettersson)

The schedule is not engraved in stone at this point. Please visit for the
up-to-date list. On that page, you can also find the starting time for
many time zones.
