Hi everyone,

i just wanted to ask if the authentication with ed25519 algorithm with the MySQLnd is maybe possible in the future?
I use mariadb which currently not support either the sha256_password or the caching_sha2_password,
therefore i have to use the standard mysql_native_password authentication, although i actually want to use
the ed25519 authentication-plugin in mariadb.

Best regards,

Dimi

Hi Dimi,
hi everyone,

I don't know about this algorithm. On one running server and on my local 
linuxbox there is Mysql running.
On another server the provider changed from mysql to mariadb. As reason 
for the change from mysql 5.7 to mariadb 10.5
the provider only told his customers that mariadb is an enlargement of 
the database and based on mysql. Nothing told about
better security or any more, only that the provider looked forward 
without problems in the changingprocess.

Regards,
Ruprecht
