MySQL Enterprise Edition provides ready to use external authentication modules to easily integrate existing security infrastructures, including Linux Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) and Windows Active Directory. By authenticating MySQL users from centralized directories, organizations can implement Single Sign On. The same user names, passwords and permissions can be used. This makes MySQL DBAs more productive by eliminating the need to manage credentials in individual systems. It also makes IT infrastructures more secure by leveraging existing security rules and processes (e.g. identifying weak passwords and managing password expiration).
MySQL users can be authenticated using PAM or native Windows OS services.
