MySQL 8 Encryption At Rest


Recommended Posts


Using MySQL 8.0.18 - all is working fine. But I need to add encryption at rest functionality using the keyring_file.dll plugin.

This should be achievable using:


I have used the 'keyring_file.dll' and 'keyring_udf.dll' from MySQL 8.0.22 ZIP and placed in created directory: /UniServerZ/core/mysql/lib/plugin/

But nope - spent a day and a half fiddling with paths etc. etc. - mysql simply fails to start with above config.

2020-11-11T10:54:49.858479Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-010901] [Server] Can't open shared library 'J:\UniServerZ\core\mysql\lib\plugin\keyring_file.dll' (errno: 126 The specified module could not be found.).

This is preventing me from using Uniform Server for a very specific purpose as a standalone, USB drive based solution for an urgent requirement...

Very frustrating!
