Re: [Maria-discuss] MariaDB encryption


humm, now i'm thinking as a data warehouse
​think about installing a server (server 1) in somewhere (maybe saara
desert).... i connect the "server 1" to internet, and configure the server
uri to point to my central server (server central), maybe at moon

when the mysqld/mariadbd start, it will contact the central server and get
all keys, or only get keys when i need? for example a server with 1000
tables and 1000 diferent keys, they are all stored at memory at boot time,
or only when i need read/write access to that table?

if i remove the internet link, the "server 1" will not read tables, right?
in this case, if i have the keyfile in a pendrive, or a cd or dvd, could i
redirect it to a key file and start database, as a backup solution?
