    Secure MySQL Database Design
    By Kristy Westphal

    Databases are commonly referred to the keys to the kingdom, meaning that
    once they are compromised, all the valuable data that is stored there
    could fall into the hands of the attacker. With this in mind, this article
    will discuss various methods to secure databases, specifically one of the
    most popular freeware databases in use today, MySQL.
