Re: procedure to change database encryption with file_key_management plugin?



Still looking for some alternative to AWS.

I did find 'Vault', a well-established & active project


which appears to be an on-premises alternative to AWS & HSMs

with open sources here


and a "MariaDB Secrets Engine"


"The database secrets engine generates database credentials dynamically based on configured roles. It works with a number of different databases through a plugin interface. There are a number of builtin database types and an exposed framework for running custom database types for extendability. This means that services that need to access a database no longer need to hardcode credentials: they can request them from Vault, and use Vault's leasing mechanism to more easily roll keys."

Has there been any work on a Vault-based MariaDB plugin with key management/rotation capabilities similar to that provided by the AWS offsite solution?
