Authentication Updates for MySQL

MySQL 5.5.7 Adds New Authentication Capabilities

Jessica Thornsby

Support for pluggable authentication and proxy users is added for latest MySQL release.

MySQL version 5.5.7 has been released with changes to the authentication process. MySQL authentication now supports new capabilities: pluggable authentication and proxy users. The first, allows the server to use plugins to authenticate incoming client connections, and the second allows users to enable a client to have the privileges of a different user. For more information on these authentication changes, please see the Changes file.
