Q&A > database programming > How can I secure MySQL & CGI? contributed by BBQ

Extending btrott's well posted advice, I'd really look into Oracle... Apart from supporting transactions, you have very good security methods that you can implement on the database, like roles, table/field encryption, and SSL on the Oracle listeners.

The product itself is not that expensive anymore, considering that you can now purchase a 2 year license based on your CPU's frequency (license method called Universal Power Units).

HTH!
