Securing MySQL Server on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: Configuring MySQL Securely, Part 3
In Part 2 of this series, we looked at configuring MySQL securely. In this final part, we shall continue looking at ways in which to ensure a secure MySQL Configuration.
In some cases, we might have the MySQL database server setup on a dedicated machine independent from the web server. Therefore, a remote connection would be required. Using an unencrypted connection between our web application and the MySQL Server means that all traffic is sent in cleartext (unencrypted). An attacker within the network could sniff all our traffic and exfiltrate sensitive information.
